|Prepare your kids for future mechanical engineering success on cars with our model engine kits. As your children arrange, assemble, and secure the various scale pieces representing actual engine parts, they will be working on their critical and logical thinking skills while building a basic understanding of mechanics. Illustrated instructions with detailed descriptions filled with helpful hints and tips make model building a smooth and educational process. Kids will also learn how to make necessary adjustments and utilize maintenance techniques for proper, long term operation and use of their engine kits.|
|Gaining this knowledge at a young age will help to build a child's sense of responsibility when it comes to properly maintaining an engine, while it should also prove useful when he or she starts driving for the first time. Each model engine kit contains valuable background information to give your children an in-depth look into the history of internal combustion engines and other motors. Their clear exteriors allow children to see the internal workings of each engine, which are powered by batteries or a hand crank. These model engines make great learning tools for the classroom to help with retention of information when discussing mechanics and other more broad realms of science, such as physics and engineering.|
