Review & Giveaway: Calling All Future Engineers! Geomag Gravity Up & Down Circuit
I’m so excited to be featuring the Geomag Gravity Up & Down Circuit on Vivre Le Rêve today! If you’re thinking of what to buy children in your family this Christmas, this would definitely be a winner, with both children and parents alike. The up & down circuit set is based on the movement of the Geomag spheres. Their weight moves a never-ending spiral and starts a real gravity motor. In this system of magnetic gears a second spiral is activated, allowing the spheres to ascend as if they were in an elevator.
Once they reach the top of the structure, the spheres enter a circuit full of amazing magnetic tricks and then descend once again to keep the gravity motor active!
My son is into all things science and technology. As he gets older, I have to admit that it’s getting harder and harder to find STEM gifts that he either doesn’t already have, or are relevant for his age group. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. STEM learning encourages children to discover more about these subjects through fun, engaging and practical learning. These areas are also considered to be important career paths, so getting started with STEM can help put your children on the road to success. This is where Geomag come in, we’ve amassed quite a collection of their sets over the last decade. You can tell that they are impeccably well made and have obviously been built to last as both him and his friends still play with them all!
We love this new magnetic construction system. By adding new mechanical elements to their sets, Geomag give you lots of new opportunities to play and learn lots more about magnetic attraction and repulsion.
There are 330 pieces contained in this set, this includes 21 magnetic rods, 39 steel spheres and 270 plastic mechanical elements. As a parent, you can tell that this has been developed with expert players in mind, the new construction system is based on an innovative gravity motor. This uses the weight of the Geomag spheres to kick-start the mechanisms and movements of the Geomag mechanics structures. The motion is provided by the invisible forces of gravity and magnetism, without using electricity or batteries. The whole play experience is based on these fundamental principles of physics.
This is a stem product that can truly stimulate curiosity and inspire children to learn more about science whilst they play.
Also available within this range is the Geomag Mechanics Gravity Shoot & Catch set. This set has a magnetic motor that makes the Geomag spheres move up along a never-ending spiral and reach a circuit of amazing magnetic tricks. It contains 11 magnetic rods, 36 steel spheres and 196 plastic mechanical elements. These gears are essential to harness the forces of gravity and magnetism. Both of these sets make great gifts for more able children that want to get hands on with physics elements. It’s so important to encourage young scientists to make new discoveries, explore the nature of our world and uncover the secrets of the universe. STEM toys can help them get started at home and discover which area fascinates them most whilst also having fun! They also have a great range of other sets like the Geomag Mechanics Up and Down Circuit set to expand the range of experiments you can do.
Geomag are offering our readers the chance to win a Geomag Mechanics Shoot & Catch set for themselves. Just enter via the rafflecopter below, good luck!
