  • Pepper Mint in the Great Treehouse Engineering AdventureIn this story-based STEM kit, Pepper Mint visits her aunt who is a scientist researching primates. She lives in a treehouse in the rainforest on the island of Borneo. The treehouse is not connected to the electrical power grid, but Pepper Mint and her aunt devise mechanical inventions to accomplish various tasks. They equip the treehouse with mechanical equipment using pulleys, winches, and gears, and learn lessons in physics. Projects include a rope ladder, a pulley to lift heavy objects into the treehouse, a rubber-band-powered lift, a rotating palm leaf umbrella, a zipline, a catapult, and a trap door. At the end of the story, Pepper Mint wires up a string of LED lanterns using conductive thread and a battery holder to light up the treehouse in the dark jungle night. While doing this, she learns about electric circuits. The kit includes materials to build the treehouse and do the projects, a full-colour illustrated storybook and step-by-step instruction manual, as well as a scale Pepper Mint figurine.
  • COMING SOONPepper Mint in the Fantastic Underwater Science VoyageIn this story-based STEM kit, Pepper Mint accompanies an expedition to the Bermuda Triangle. Soon she discovers that the ocean water there behaves in strange and unexpected ways. When the onboard systems of the research vessel fail, Pepper Mint figures out how to use water to make simple hydraulic machines and conduct experiments with pressure and density. The accompanying story takes the characters from experiment to experiment and shows them how to power small machines with the help of water. Pepper Mint constructs a rig to raise and lower the ship’s flag and a series of hydraulic devices including a ship’s crane. A deep-sea fish with big snapping jaws is modeled using a scissors mechanism. Finally, Pepper Mint fixes the ship’s propeller and discovers it produces a lot of tiny air bubbles, which inspires the creation of an electric bubble-blowing machine with a propeller. The experiments teach lessons in mechanical physics, electric circuits, and physical science principles related to water and air. The kit includes materials to build the boat and do the projects, a full-colour illustrated storybook and step-by-step instruction manual, as well as a scale Pepper Mint figurine.
