|Thames & Kosmos produces exciting science kits for our new generation of engineers. The kits are numerous, and remind me of both the classic Erector sets and Capsela building sets from the 80s.
I have focused on the “Thames & Kosmos Air + Water Power Kit,” because of its overall appeal to most youngsters ages 8 and up. This kit will allow you to build your own models powered by either water or air, and learn some basic Physics laws at the same time. The water-jet propelled cars can be used outdoors, while the Hydro-pneumo powered models can be used indoors or out.
There are 15 different models to choose from, including a truck, excavator, plane, helicopter and tank.
Everything you need to complete each model is included in the “Thames & Kosmos Air + Water Power Kit.” There is a 48 page color instruction manual outlining the step by step assembly process, and there are 165 building pieces in the complete kit.
