Polydron - Engineer Class Set
Description / Polydron - Engineer Class Set
The ultimate practical resource for reinforcing mechanical design and technology understanding. With this set it’s possible to build ambitious free-form constructions, or follow guidance to create 14 models including cable cars, a gearbox, crane, chairoplane and more. There are enough pieces to form 3-4 of the guided constructions simultaneously.
Manipulatives like this draw on a huge variety of important skills. Children will be exploring their creativity whilst practising fine motor skills, planning, construction, and use of descriptive language. If working in pairs or groups, they’ll need to communicate clearly and show strong teamwork abilities.
An assortment of wheels, gears, handles, cord, struts, and much more! Supplied alongside baseboards, and standard rectangular and triangular pieces to form a comprehensive, versatile set. Pieces readily clip together by their edges, a design which makes them compatible with Polydron Original and Frameworks. Ideal if you’re looking to expand upon existing school stock.
Stored in a Gratnells
With all these small pieces, compact storage is a must. The entire set packs neatly into the provided Gratnells deep tray with lid, making it simple to tidy up at the end of activities. Perfect for the home or classroom environment where it’s easy to lose track of small manipulatives.
Easily enough pieces (250) to cater for a small group of students to work simultaneously on separate constructions. Equally would make a fantastic addition to the home.
