During play with ramps, children experience a hands-on application of the core STEM concepts behind the physics of motion.
Ramps allow children to inherently learn these concepts in a meaningful context building a fundamental understanding of physics, refining their problem-solving skills and working through fun and challenging play opportunities.
The Discovery Ramps Exploration Kit is a comprehensive, mobile ramp kit designed specifically for children to gain an understanding of force and motion through building and experimenting, testing and hypothesising, assessing failure points, and problem solving through use of a wide variety of ramps and construction options.
