We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

By Jessica Prescott

Learn how to play chess, the world’s most popular board game! It’s easy to learn, and anyone can play it. Jessica Prescott teaches you how you can get good at it and start winning. Improve your skills through 35 fun activities. This isn’t just a textbook about the rules of the game! Why not have a game of Pawn Football (pawns line up at their starting rank and race to the other side), or do the Queen Dance (make a checkmate using only a queen and king)? Try Scholar’s Mate: the four-move checkmate every beginner needs to know, and when you’re really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets. All the activities have clear, colorful illustrations so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chessboard. There are also helpful hints and tips throughout, and if you’ve ever forgotten how a piece moves or need to brush up on a rule, look at the Starting Out section for a reminder.

Softcover book containing 128 pages.

  • Build five models including a helicopter, solar-bot, moon rover, stag beetle, and praying mantis
  • Learn about harnessing and using solar power
  • Experiment with motors, gears, and simple machines

In one way or another, almost every form of energy we use originates as energy from the sun. Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells.

By building five awesome models and conducting experiments with them, learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy. Start with a simple helicopter model that converts sunlight into a rotating motion and demonstrates the basics of solar technology.

Build models of: a solar-bot, or a moon rover, or a stag beetle. Finally, build a cool praying mantis model that moves like an insect and is powered by a solar cell! The models can also be powered by a battery (sold separately), allowing operation in all lighting conditions.

Includes 138 parts, which are compatible with other Thames & Kosmos physics and engineering kits, and 48-page book with illustrated step-by-step instructions for the projects.

Compatible with one rechargeable AA battery (not required, sold separately).
