Description

Calling all future architects and structural engineers! This exciting STEM kit for grades 3-6 combines the best of hands-on engineering, problem solving, and DIY creativity. Whether they follow the detailed instructions (included) or opt for their own original design, students will be challenged as they build the wooden Ferris Wheel. Includes a low melt glue gun, 2 glue sticks, 55 wooden craft sticks, cardboard, a ruler, a dowel, and complete instructions. This Educational Innovations exclusive will get students away from their screens and immerse them in the "old-fashioned" pleasure of building an object from scratch.

The Refill Kit contains 150 wooden sticks, 3 pieces of cardboard, 3 dowels, and 6 glue sticks, enough materials to build three additional Ferris Wheels. (Sold without ruler and low melt glue gun.)

Also available - Mini Glue Gun

This super-low temperature glue gun is safer and cooler than other low temperature models. Great for crafts, art, school projects, and any other task that needs a cooler adhesive. The value-priced gun is a perfect starter tool for those still learning to use glue guns - and/or for projects that don't require extreme heat. Compact size makes the gun easy to prep, use, clean, and store. An excellent choice for new or inexperienced users. Adult supervision recommended for youth ages 13 and younger.
