Introducing Block Science An extension of the unit block system created around physics to harness the energy of play.
Unit Blocks The original STEM toy
Designed to entice a child’s inner architect, smooth-sanded rubberwood pieces encourage young builders to create buildings, arches and structures for towering block cities and quiet country towns. Unit Blocks teach engineering and geometry in addition to building fine motor control, cognitive function and problem-solving. Adding Block Science Foundation Sets bring movement and physics into traditional block play. The combined Block Science System stimulates young minds and provides hours of continuous play and expression.
Block Science Foundation Sets
This pioneering extension of the unit blocks system adds a rich layer of cognitive development to traditional classroom block play. The Foundation Sets are designed to exercise early engineering concepts, collaboration, and the study of matter, motion and mathematics. Plastic building and roadway clips stabilize builds, drawbridges and loops to enable taller, sturdier and movable tracks and builds. Simplified, wooden cars with plastic wheels easily glide across the solid wood tracks while carrying algebraic people designed for mathematical and dramatic play activities.
Block Science Concept Cards
Our concept cards are just that- visual concepts that show the correlation between the world we live in and how we can shape that world and the related concepts using the Block Science system.
Please consider these cards below as a starting point for building within the Block Science system. Happy building!
Budding engineers create winding country roads or express highways easily connected with overmolded plastic clips. Sets are available in three sizes to fit classroom needs. See all of our Foundation Sets here.
Cars and People
Simplified cars and algebraic people introduce social-emotional expression into block play for positive cognitive growth and fine-motor control. See our Cars and People Sets here.
The Block Science Foundation Sets are designed to be used with Unit Blocks to create towering cities and sturdy bridges. Available in corresponding sizes to complement each Foundation Set here.
