About the book:
The Christy Hale book has been thoughtfully selected to pair with our Building Box as it showcases different types of building techniques. This is achieved through examples of real-world buildings with lots of different architecture. But the key feature of this book is that it shows how each of these real-world buildings connect to ‘building play’ at a young age. A true representation of where your skills can take you.
Note: You will receive a hard-cover copy of this picture book.
About the Building Box:
The perfect box for the young engineer. This box combines different items that do not traditionally interlock, connect or stick together. Your builds will need to have the perfect match between stability, height and function. This will test your balance, skill and patience! Perfect for your STEM mindset. This kit contains prompt cards* which are used to investigate and guide your learning. They will challenge you with different constraints in your builds. This box promotes open-ended discoveries and puts you at the forefront of your learning. The possibilities are endless!
*Building items and learning prompts designed by STEM professionals working in multiple areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
