Block and Construction Kit for Schools

Product Description

Blocks are teachers, not just toys.  Blocks can be the foundation for an inclusive cross-gender maker space where experimentation and play develop key design concepts:

  • geometry,
  • engineering,
  • physics,
  • volume,
  • planning in space. 

We assembled our Block and Construction Kit for Schools for versatility and to engage a wide range of ages.  This collection is an ideal resource for a lunch time or after school program. With the variety of textures, shapes and materials, and virtually unbreakable, this kit will never go out of style for a legacy of learning. 

 

Why Blocks

 

 

Blocks have captured the imagination of generations of children as well as being the cornerstone of developmentally appropriate play.  Unlike building sets that lock together, blocks allow for the exploration of essential concepts of engineering and construction:

  • mass
  • gravity
  • tension
  • cantilever
  • geometry and more
  • proportionality
  • structure and more.
 

 

Our Kit Plays well with others

 

With our block set you can add and combine with any existing material you have. 

Combines the best quality material of maple hardwood, with dazzling colour blocks.  Plus mobile storage for sharing in different classrooms and libraries.

Use the kit for competitions or challenges, from tallest towers, to strongest structure, to dazzling developments.
