It is amazing what happens when we trust kids with their own ideas. That's why we created the Electric Motors Catalyst: to inspire young Tinkerers to imagine and build their own inventions.
Children are happiest with their hands and minds are working together - they're having fun, and they're also honing their hands-on creative problem-solving skills.
Everything is included, even the batteries and a giant paper work surface. And to fuel the imagination, the Electric Motors Catalyst comes with a deck of Challenge Cards, with inspirational prompts such as "Build a machine that draws curvy lines" and "Make a machine that can scramble an egg."
We are constantly amazed by the ingenuity and variety of creative solutions that kids come up with. Who knows what your young Tinkerers will invent?
