Discovery Ramps are an incredibly open-ended and engaging way to introduce the fundamentals of engineering and loose parts play to children.
With it’s small footprint, The Discovery Ramps Deluxe Set provides an aesthetic way to display and store your ramps and balls. The ramp holder includes tubes that children can use as loose parts within their systems. When they’re ready to tidy up, children can put the parts back in place easily on their own. Included are two storage bags for holding balls and a set of our exclusive deflectors. These are used to cause balls to change direction when placed at the end of a ramp path and are a favourite accessory of young children.

With a series of wooden ramps, balls, and tubes, students can explore STEM concepts such as force and motion; certain to spark creativity, fun and problem solving!
Children will gain an understanding of physics-based concepts such as gravity, mass and slope through building and experimenting with the ramps. The long wood pieces can be propped up on furniture, books, boxes, blocks or any unlevel surface and are the perfect size for the wooden balls to roll down. Ask children to explore this set and see child ingenuity at work!
Whether you have preschoolers or school age children, the Discovery Ramps Deluxe Set will add interest and inspire investigation in your learning environment. Explore STEM concepts such as force and motion, discover the physics of inclined planes, and tinker with design and problem solving.
