TOOLS FOR DISCOVERY

SSC's Tools for Discovery include interactive, open-ended play equipment designed to encourage creativity and early science exploration for all ages. Various sets of tubes in Motion By Design, Motion 1, Motion 2 and Motion Complex provide opportunities to see and experience the effects of gravity, weight, form and other elements on movement of objects on various surfaces. The Keystone Arch, large Building Blocks, Design Blocks and Puzzle Cube encourage team building, creativity and understanding of structures. Large Velcro Design Walls provide a surface for Motion by Design, Design Blocks and Tic-Tac-Toe. In addition, they provide flexible surfaces to use for other activities such as art creations and storytelling. Sensory Tubes and Activity Boxes filled with a variety of objects allow opportunities for infants and older to experience the way materials interact, feel, look and sound when contained in the same structure.

BuildingBlocks KEYSTONE ARCH
These arches (2 sizes) are based on a fundamental principle used in constructing self-supporting structures that can span large distances and bear heavy loads. The 'Voissoir' arch principle, developed by the Romans, can be seen in many of the bridge and aqueduct structures still standing today. Building a 'Keystone Arch' requires the cooperation of several children. The blocks need to be positioned spatially with the final piece at the top of the arch necessary to keep all other pieces in place; therein the name 'Keystone'. To build one is challenging and great fun.

arrow NEW!!! PUZZLE CUBE

The "Puzzle Cube" is based on the 1933 Soma Cube. We have taken it to a size and construction that works well in a commercial play environment: large and durable, yet easy to pick up and put together. The cube forms are each 8" x 8" x 8" in various combinations to form seven (7) different pieces that assemble to form a 2' x 2' x 2' Cube. There are many ways to solve the puzzle, but it takes time and patience to figure out. We recommend some visual information adjacent to the pieces to illustrate the objective of the Puzzle.

(SC 12-575)
Assembled Dimensions: 2' x 2' x 2'
$795.00

Each piece is constructed of very firm foam with a hand-sewn cover fitted very tightly to the shape. The assembled pieces fit together comfortably, allowing easy manipulation of the parts, but not quite like machined wood or plastic which fit very precisely.

ARROW SQUARES & RECTANGLES

Squares

Rectangles

'Squares and Rectangles' are designed to promote spatial observations while enjoying the sheer pleasure of creating bold and colorful designs. Each set employs a basic 6" increment used in various multiples to determine size. When a set is used with the frame provided, the challenge of filling the frame allows the potential for observations that are mathematical in character. (For example, it takes two of one size block to fill the same hole that is filled by one of another block.) On a continuum of complexity, 'Squares' is more limited in size options, making it easier to use in filling the frame. 'Rectangles' provides a greater variety of design alternatives, is more challenging to fit the frame, and requires greater understanding of relative size.

EACH SET INCLUDES A 31" x 31" FRAME

SQUARES (SC 99-310)
Includes: 21 Blocks
(16) 6" x 6", (4) 12" x 12", (1)18" x 18"

MotionComplex
 
ARROW MOTION 1
'Motion 1' engages children in activities focused on movement; their own and that of objects dropped or rolled through clear tubes. A 'catch-all pool' to climb into, steps, a gently sloping walk ramp and a crawl-through tunnel keep children moving. Clear tubes placed on horizontal and sloped surfaces provide a fun introduction to concepts associated with motion such as gravity and resistance
