Create Endless Designs with the Power of Gravity
Create cool patterns with sand, water, and gravity when you put together the Discovery 3D Motion Sandscape. Just follow the instructions to fill the Sandscape with sand and soapy water; and then every time you rotate the Sandscape display in the base, gravity kicks in, pulling the sand down into the water and creating swirling patterns. These are called turbulent eddies, a phenomena that occurs in fluid flow. A large color poster provides more information about sand, water, and eddies.
This kit includes:
1 Plastic Funnel;
4 Bags of sand (1oz each);
Set-up time is only 10 minutes! Check out the video in the Photo Gallery.
It has the "STEM" seal which means that this fabulous set is building upon one or more of the following educational fields: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The STEM fields are becoming more important than ever before -- educators are incorporating and focusing on the four fields in their classrooms. STEM education teaches students essential problem-solving skills that they will need as they grow and develop, and helps them learn how to manage themselves and work out critical thinking issues in their daily life. The belief and goal of teaching STEM skills is that it will prepare our children for better jobs in a global economy.
By gifting your child with this STEM toy to play with and explore at home, you are giving your child access to STEM learning at an early age. The benefits of incorporating STEM in the home environment include advanced learning, teaching your child how to solve problems of increasing difficulty calmly, and teaching your child the benefits of open-ended situations.
