Mechanics Challenge Strike – Learning by play is an integral part of growing up. Parents have a major role to play in shaping their children’s learning process as they know their inherent skills, interest, and motivational factors.
Being a mother, I know that children enjoy learning much more when their parents take an equal interest and participate in the process. It makes them super confident and communicative, which helps to boost their metacognitive skills.
In 1998 Geomag invented the first magnetic construction toy, it had simple elements, such as rods and spheres, held together by a magical force of attraction to build amazing structures. Over the years they have extended their range to include a selection of toys for different age groups and abilities.
Magnetism is key to the Geomag philosophy of play and learning, their fun, challenging and engaging play platforms aim to create enthusiastic learners.
Creativity, intelligence, the human mind, magnetism and even gravity are all natural energies and forces that cannot be seen but make all the play activities with their products fun and educational.
Creative and imaginative play for all ages, encouraging logical thinking and stimulating resourceful solutions.
Hands-on activities perfect children’s fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination as well as concentration.
Playing together is fundamental, as children develop communication and social skills, such as turn-taking, sharing and problem-solving.
STEAM learning – The natural partner for Geomag. This is an interdisciplinary approach to science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics so that children learn to apply this knowledge to real-life experiences.
An additional plus is the Geomag products have been awarded the STEM TM certificationby stem.org – STEM encourages children to experiment, make mistakes and learn from their own experiences to reach correct outcomes, rather than relying on what the textbook says.
Women Talking takes great pleasure in experimenting with one of their latest additions Geomag MechanicsChallengeStrikel!
Mechanics is the construction platform that combines the forces of magnetism with a world of mechanical construction, to stimulate creativity, inventiveness, and ingenuity. In addition to the classic magnetic rods and steel spheres, Geomag Mechanics adds mechanical elements within the constructions, expanding the play possibilities: some parts of the structures can rotate, triggering chain reactions from the magnetic attraction and repulsion.
Geomag MechanicsChallengeStrike encourages you to build the construction first, and then be ready for hours of fun either alone or in competition with others, where precision, timing and dexterity are the key to victory. With as many as 185 individual parts, both the construction itself and the subsequent gaming experience are challenging and educational for everyone involved. For 1-4 players. From 7 years.
Since Geomag toys are focused on the healthy development of children, they feel equally responsible for the health and future of the environment that children are growing up in.
Consequently, they have improved the quality of their magnets and designed a practical storage box made of 100% recycled plastic.
Their new lines also use selected recycled raw materials, thus minimising the use of natural resources and cutting waste.
Geomag has always cared about the development and education of children, as demonstrated by their Geomagworld Education and School Heroes projects. The School Heroes play a key role in social and educational projects aimed at promoting the healthy growth and education of all girls and boys and the development of their personal potential.
The Geomag (779) Mechanics Challenge Strike is available from Coolshop for £49.
