Join Pepper Mint as she explores the engineering principles behind everything she needs to run a treehouse in the jungle of Borneo! In this story-based STEM kit from Thames & Kosmos, Pepper Mint is visiting her primatologist aunt in the field. The treehouse where they're staying is not connected to the electrical power grid, but Pepper and her aunt devise various mechanical inventions, from a rope ladder to a pulley to lift heavy objects into the treehouse to a rotating palm leaf umbrella, and more. For a final touch, Pepper wires up a string of LED lanterns using conductive thread and a battery holder to light up the treehouse in the dark jungle night.
This kit includes all the materials to build the treehouse and do the projects, a full-color illustrated storybook and step-by-step instruction manual, and a scale Pepper Mint figure.
