Students use colors, sizes and shapes to correctly build a simple machine and then perform a scientific experiment to see how it works. In each class students will build a new and exciting machine and watch it work! Literacy skills are improved by memorizing poems with hand motions about gears, levers and pulleys to reinforce how they work and what they do.

Classes are progressive and build on one another. This is the next generation of critical thinking toys! We wrap our hands and our heads around a problem.
