Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 with the mission of improving informal science education outside of the classroom by publishing high-quality science kits for children of all ages. T&K's mission has since expanded from its STEM roots to encompass other educational branches as well, including arts and crafts and the panoply of thinking and social skills that can be taught through games.
T&K places an emphasis on teaching concepts and skills through tactile processes. Our vision is to give all children access to real, physical activities and projects that teach them how things work.
Read the amusing story of Karlie and Ty Omega, two inquisitive kids who build simple models of the aircraft they discover on their hilarious family vacation. Along this roundabout trip, the kids build various flying machines to help the people they encounter solve problems and complete tasks. As you follow the story, you can build models of the 10 vehicles in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together.
This fun and informative physics and engineering kit allows preschool-age kids to get a head start on learning important STEM related skills.
Large and colorful plastic building pieces enable small hands to construct models of the 10 vehicles featured in the story. The hands-on nature of the kit aids in the development of fine motor and visual-spatial skills.
Storybook-style instruction manual
The storybook-style manual provides an engaging way to teach simple physics and engineering concepts. Interspersed throughout the story are illustrated instructions to guide children in creating the models as they read about them.
Durable storage case
All components of the kit fit neatly in a durable plastic storage case ensuring easy clean-up and transport.
When the Omega family's vacation is in trouble because their flight is cancelled, they decide to get to work and build their own aircraft to get them where they want to go!
The Omegas take a trip in Helen the Helicopter to get to Turtle Island, but when the tide comes in, they need to build a different aircraft: Cecile the Seaplane. With pontoons, Cecile can take off and land in the water!
When a wrong turn in their hang glider takes them to a NASA launch site, Karlie and Ty build Sam the Space Plane so they can get a tour of space from the astronauts!
When it's time to go home, Karlie and Ty want to fly in style, so they construct Billy the Biplane. But when the flight takes longer than they'd like, they wonder what would help their aircraft go faster: more wings or a bigger engine?
