This kit is designed with the concept of “Learning Through Practical Thinking” at its core. The idea is that learning is much more effective when combined with physical activity and discovery, rather than straightforward reading and repetition of cold facts. Therefore this and future kits will be developed which encourage development of new skills and to apply them as part of practical projects.
