The Block Science Foundation Set C by Guide Craft is a unique extension of the traditional classroom block play that adds a rich introduction to physics and essential cognitive development. It is designed to exercise early engineering concepts, collaboration, and the study of matter, motion, and mathematics. These sets come in three sizes: a 55-piece set, a 92-piece set, and a 155-piece set, each composed of smooth sanded beech wood and rubberwood pieces and over-molded plastic building and roadway clips that stabilize builds, drawbridges, and loops, enabling taller, sturdier, and more mobile tracks and builds.
The Foundation Set C features beech wood roadways that connect smoothly with plastic roadway clips. Algebraic people with symbols for math activities or differentiation during dramatic play easily glide across the solid wood tracks on simplified wooden cars with soft plastic wheels. The set also introduces drawbridge, intersection, and roadway switch pieces to encourage complex building and play.
Each Foundation Set includes Concept Cards for building examples and language associations. Block Science Foundation Set C requires standard unit blocks for a proper building experience and is ideal for two to three groups of builders.
This set is an excellent tool for developing fine motor skills, early engineering concepts, teamwork, collaboration, spatial thinking, problem-solving, and STEM concepts. It is suitable for children ages 3 and up. The product is available with an activity guide that will help users get started.
