Description Description Use this cool construction kit to set up a Mars Base Camp with lights, sensors, alarms, and moving parts!
Welcome to your new home—Mars! Featuring over 70 building pieces, Archi-TECH Life on Mars
lets budding astronauts build a landing vehicle and base camp pods. Once you’ve built your pods, you can use the plug-in power posts and electronic components to wire them up with lights, sensors, alarms, motors, and more. Construct an elevator from the descent vehicle to the base, create a conveyor platform to transport Mars rocks to the laboratory for scanning, and build a greenhouse to grow food and produce oxygen. Set up sensors that let you know when oxygen is too low—or radiation too high—inside a pod.
The plug-in modules are similar to Smart Lab’s best-selling Smart Circuits system, allowing young engineers to learn and experiment with basic circuitry through creative, fun, and hands-on activities that teach practical skills.
The 32-page illustrated manual shows you how to put together different builds and circuits. Along the way, you’ll learn about Mars, space travel, and the challenges of living on the Red Planet. You’ll also learn the science behind light sensors, switches, speakers, electric motors, semi-conductors, and more.
Hours of STEM engineering fun: Design and build futuristic space pods with lights, sound, and motion; the modular building system lets you add and stack floors in all sorts of configurations, then add your own furnishings, control panels, and accessories.
Kinetic, energetic circuitry projects: Create an automatic door, a drawbridge, flickering computer screen, automatic light, alarm system, elevator, and more while learning the science behind electronic circuits.
