STEM in a Box - BricQ Motion Prime

I'm sure you've noticed, the image on the front of your STEM in a Box kit looks nothing like a Land Yacht!  Well, that's because this kit can build several different projects (technically it can build hundres, your imagination is your only limitation).  

But back to the model on the box.  This is our Gymnast project, very fitting given the Olympics is currently taking place!  In the box you will find the instructions to build this model.  

LEGO Education also have a great video series that will guide you through the Gymnast project and enable you to discover STEM through Sports! (please note registration (free) on the LEGO website is required to view the videos)
