Description

Construct a whole zoo’s worth of remote-controlled animals with mechanical insides covered by colorful plastic “skins.” The animals all move using different mechanisms, each one mimicking the movement of the real animal it represents. A two-button remote control unit moves the small, lightweight motor forward and in reverse, allowing the models to move forward or backward.





Build an elephant that walks, a scorpion that crawls along, and a cute little penguin that waddles. Construct a rabbit that bounds forward, a crab that scurries sideways, and an orangutan that climbs hand over hand along a string. You can even build a couple of dinosaurs: a Tyrannosaurus rex that walks on two legs and a Pteranodon that “flies” along a cord. Learn about animal locomotion and biomechanics as you build each model. When you are done, use the same 100 building pieces to dream up your own mechanical animal creations! You can even mix up the animal skins in funny ways to make outrageous hybrid animals.

A full-color, 36-page step-by-step illustrated manual helps kids assemble all of the models, and teaches them about the animals they are modeling and the ways different animals move.

Activities and outcomes:
Children conduct chemistry and physics experiments, build robotic and solar power devices, explore the microscopic world, play archaeologist, experiment with fragrances, perform exciting science shows, etc. to ignite a lifelong love of science.

About:
Thames & Kosmos (T&K) was founded in 2001 by a science museum director and her son with the mission of publishing high quality science and technology educational kits—resources for parents and their children that are more engaging, more effective, more relevant, and more fun.

The company places an emphasis on teaching concepts and skills through hands-on modeling of real world devices and processes, and by offering comprehensive reading materials for a rich learning experience.

T&K currently offers more than 60 science and technology kits in thirteen categories, including chemistry, physics, environmental science, technology, biology, natural history, fundamentals, astronomy, classic science, little labs, sophisticated science, and construction.

Operating as the exclusive North American distributor for the science kit line of the German publishing house Franckh-Kosmos Verlags-GmbH—Kosmos for short—T&K translates, rewrites and distributes Kosmos science kits in the English language. It started designing its own line of science kits in 2005.

Providence, RI. Distributes its products primarily in the United States and Canada
