Kids who love building things will usually love playing with building sets. Some may even try to test out if their structures can handle pressures and still stand. Well, kids can now try that out building structures using the Aftershock! Earthquake Lab.
The Aftershock! Earthquake Lab is a building set that comes with a shake table. The purpose of this dual-motion shake table is to simulate all types of seismic events. The set comes with building pieces using a variable-lock girder system. What this does is allow kids to design and build different building structures in a number of ways. But that is not where the fun comes in. Kids can place the structure they’ve built and try to see if it can withstand an earthquake. The set also comes with a science book that will help guide kids as to what structures can withstand different earthquake intensities.
Kids can also experiment with other structures they think will be strong enough to take on the strongest of earthquakes. Playing with this building set helps kids develop their visual-spatial skills as well as encourage experimentation and creativity. It also helps kids develop an early interest in the field of engineering. The Aftershock! Earthquake Lab is ideal for kids from 8 years old and above. It is available at Fat Brain Toys for around $38.
