Forty Years Of Teaching STEM - And How It Changed My Career

Build your own motorized vehicles and machines and control them with a wireless remote control unit. A unique six button infrared remote allows you to control three different motors simultaneously, moving each of them forward or in reverse, with easy-to-activate touch sensors. The three motors can be combined to make complex vehicles and machines in numerous configurations limited only by your imagination.

Assemble ten models demonstrating different ways in which the motors can be used including a bulldozer, car, three-wheeler, crane, antique car, plow, folding car, formula one racer, three-blade dozer, and robotic arm. After you have built the models in the instructions, you can design your own remote control creations!

The kit comes with three motors, remote control unit, battery holder, and building blocks. Collaborate with your fellow junior engineers to build fantastic and functional remote-control creations!

The 48-page color instruction book included in this kit gives illustrated step-by-step instructions for the models to help children learn through play and develop their mechanical understanding, creative thinking skills, and hand-eye coordination.

The 182 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in all Thames & Kosmos Construction Series kits, Physics Series kits, Wind Power, and Hydropower kits.

NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.

    Thames-Kosmos Remote-Control Machines
    Posted 9/16/2013 by lisa knutson

    Our 9 year old loves this toy. We wish that 1) there was a complement set like "Remote-Control Machines Pro" or similar to enlarge building possibilities and expand experiential learning, and 2) that an optional RC with motors was available so that two "machines" could be built independently and controlled independently for racing, battle-bots, and just plain fooling around learning fun. We love this product and have two so Mom or Dad or friends can build with our son!

    Remote-Contoll Machines
    Posted 5/11/2013 by MARIA A LARA-RIVAS

    My 11 yr old son thinks this is fabulous toy !! He wanted to take this to school as a "Show and Tell" speech presentation. He put it together as soon as we got home and didn't lay it down till he got to bed. He has played with it everyday after school . His speech presentation was on how to make robots. He has taken it to school everyday since and the other school children enjoy it. He was disappointed when he lost a small red x6 piece. I wish extra pieces were included. My only concern is if he loses another of these small pieces, how do i purchase more without having to buy a whole new toy? My son wants a Chemistry set next from Brain Toys. Thank you.
