Pathfinders

Pathfinders

Eligantly crafted Engineering kits for kids

Pathfinders is dedicated to creating compelling, innovative, wooden science kits that challenge children of all ages to explore the link between science, design, and technology in the world around us. They aim to help the student integrate knowledge gained from constructing the kits by providing links to educational resources to enhance their understanding of math and science as well as historical principles. They are an environmentally friendly company and use recyclable materials, natural, untreated wood, and local resources and production as much as possible.

All of the kits are tested to make sure they are 100% safe, so if the dog (or a child) eats the glue then s/he will not be exposed to any unsafe levels of chemicals of any kind. Same with the other parts (like the clay projectiles). They respect our customers health!

    Hydrapult

    $34.99

    Pathfinders present: The Hydrapault -a fluid-powered catapult! Build yourself a 3-Way catapult using the power of water! Learn about hydraulics and then hurl things-the perfect mix! Catapults have traditionally been powered by using the energy in twisted rope-as in ancient Greek and Medieval Times- or in bent wood-as Leonardo da Vinci designed in his Renaissance era catapult. Pathfinders had now designed the very first hydraulic catapult-a Hydrapult-using the energy of moving fluid to hurl items! Learn about levers and simple machines, trajectories, how projectiles fly, and test theories about release angles and weight of projectiles-all with a fun and engaging DIY kit! Complete with educational material and target making instructions! Shoot at a target, go for distance, or knock down small block walls-the Hydrapult is an exciting science kit to inspire budding engineers!

    A perfect gift for enquiring minds ages 8+
