STEAM Builder Bin

SKU: W91368
A Pitsco Exclusive

Description

Engineering and creativity lead the way in this open-ended and all-inclusive kit! The STEAM Builder Bin can be used for a range of educational concepts – from design and construction to implementing the engineering design process. This kit brings several activities and challenges to the table, while allowing each learner to take their own spin on their design and build. This all-encompassing kit not only supports the construction of several different vehicle and structural builds all in one package but also can be tiered from beginner to expert and is appropriate for every learner.

Idea cards are provided to prompt student imaginations in topics such as structures, transportation, art, reading, exploration, life science, aerospace, physical science, and more. The included gears, connectors, and other pieces can be used to meet the idea card challenges or to build learners’ own creations!

Order 30 to build a class pack for a 1:1 student-to-bin ratio, or order 10 for a 3:1 ratio.
