We are so chuffed that our Pepper Mint Magnificent Mars Expedition & Engineering Makerspace Kinetic Machines made it into the Indy Best 10 Top STEM toys.

We love the Pepper Mint series here at Thames & Kosmos, particularly as it encourages girls from a young age to develop their skills in STEM subjects. Did you know that only 35% of STEM students in higher education in the UK are women? We are passionate believers in enabling girls to discover the amazing world of Science.

With the Magnificent Mars kit you’ll investigate magnetism as you discover invisible magnetic fields with iron powder, help Pepper hover in the air using magnetic forces, control the Mars rover with a bar magnet, and more.

Our Engineering Makerspace Kinetic Machines are one of our bestsellers. You can make five awesome machines and learn about the physics of force, motion, and energy. As the reviewer put it, “of all the kits, this one offers the most bang for your buck”.
