Product Information

Heating and Cooling, Material Properties and Structures

Students explore the science concepts of sunlight, shadow, and permeability as they help his sister Sophie to solve this problem. Using hands-on investigation, students learn about material properties, shapes, and construction as they engineer a sandpit covering that will block sunlight and water.
