By Daniel Nayeri

Introducing an incredible storytelling package—a full-colour, 144-page book paired with a collection of 20 six-sided, beautifully illustrated storytelling cubes that make it easy for any imaginative child (and that is every child) to start creating wonderful stories. Roll the blocks, and you can make anything happen, to anyone, anyplace in this or any other world.

The book is a guide to the principles of creative storytelling. It covers the essential elements like conflict—that thing that no one likes in real life, but without which no story could ever start—characters, motivation, dialogue, theme, and, of course, the climax. As you turn the pages, you’ll be prompted to roll the story blocks. And that’s when the magic starts to happen.

The blocks are coded by colour, each loosely associated with a part of speech. A simple exercise about motivation, for example, asks the reader to roll the blocks and find one red block (person or animal) “who wanted nothing more in this world than to” one green block (action). Depending on the outcome, the reader might end up telling a tale of a cowboy who just wanted to dance or a mummy who wanted to race cars.

How to Tell a Story combines the surprising whimsy of Mad Libs with the compelling fun of storytelling cubes. Its exercises and games will have readers mastering the basics of storytelling while exercising their creative muscles. And who knows where that journey will end?

Includes 20 blocks.

  • 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.

Ever wanted to design your own Hexbug? Now kids can do just that with VEX Robotics! The core of this simple, flexible product line is the VEX IQ system used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world.

The build-it-yourself line of VEX Robotics kits fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized Hexbug and customize its programming. With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colourful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To create the VEX Robotics Ant, young Hexbug engineers start by assembling the six red wheels and attaching the motors and the wheels to the ant’s core. Once the base is in place, the brain and sensors are connected and the bright red body pieces are attached to give the robot its flair, making it look like a Hexbug Ant! Final steps include wiring the brain to the dual bump sensors and the two motors using snap connectors.

To program the robotic ant, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming variations from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!

Set includes more than 250

Assembled Hexbug VEX Ant measures approximately 18" long x 6.75" wide x 4" tall.

Requires 3 AA batteries and one 9 volt battery (NOT INCLUDED).
