Based on the topic of forces, The Big Blast Off! introduces concepts in an engaging, age-appropriate way, underpinned by the principles of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). Readers will join Marie, Newton, and Robot in their lab, where they learn how forces make things move. They even venture into the dizzying realms of space discovery.
There’s plenty of laughter, a few challenges to overcome, and a cosmic ending guaranteed to spark the imagination. Children can also do their own experiment along with the characters as the adventure unfolds, and there are lots of other interactive elements to keep them busy.
Every day is a day for exploring at the My Discovery Lab. Join Marie, Newton, and Robot as they use their investigation skills to learn about forces and rockets. You'll even use your creativity and imagination to build your own rocket. What are you waiting for? 3-2-1 let's go!
