Pepper Mint - The Fantastic Underwater Science Voyage
This innovative range from Thames and Kosmos features a curious, skilful and creative young engineer called Pepper Mint. This story-based STEM kit is a great introduction for children and young people who want to gets hands on and experimenting with some key scientific and engineering principles.
On this particular expedition Pepper Mint travels to the Bermuda Triangle. Soon she discovers that the ocean water there behaves in strange and unexpected ways. When the onboard systems of the research vessel fail, Pepper Mint figures out how to use water to make simple hydraulic machines and conduct experiments with pressure and density.
The accompanying narrative takes the characters from experiment to experiment (9 in total) and shows them how to power small machines with the help of water. The experiments teach lessons in mechanical physics, electric circuits, and physical science principles related to water and air.
The kit includes materials to build the boat and do the projects, a full-colour illustrated storybook and step-by-step instruction manual (32 pages), as well as a Pepper Mint figure. See video for more information.
