The MPS (Mobile Power Source) is the smallest Laser Pegs Power Base which allows kids to take educational toys on the go! Children ages 5+ can enjoy illuminated light-up models safely as a low current travels from one peg to the next. The MPS batteries are easy-to-replace and the source can accommodate up to four Laser Peg connections at a time. Enjoy imaginative playtime with soaring helicopters, swift air crafts and playful robot models with convenient ON, OFF or FLASHING light settings.
Mobile Power Source Helicopters Building Instructions
Creativity bursts into color as an illuminating Helicopter takes to the skies!
Forty-five translucent pieces are arranged and rearranged to form one of four helicopter designs. Two incredible laser pegs keep the LED lights enclosed, and cause the bricks to light up when plugged into the power base!
Not to be encumbered with plugs and cords, a mobile battery powered base allows your child to zip and zoom this helicopter wherever they choose.
The Laser Pegs Helicopter was built to fly.
Assemble a T1 Super Cobra, Rescue Helicopter, Cargo Helicopter and Attack Helicopter. Fine motor skills, logic, creativity… the sky is limitless, Laser Pegs are too.
Hang on for the ride, these flying contraptions take you places.

STEM generally supports broadening the study of engineering within each of the other subjects, and beginning engineering at younger grades, even elementary school. It also brings STEM education to all students rather than only the gifted programs.
Its Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy developed a list of 10 actions and the top 3 are listed here:
- Increase America’s talent pool by improving K–12 science and mathematics education
- Strengthen the skills of teachers through additional training in science, mathematics and technology
- Enlarge the pipeline of students prepared to enter college and graduate with STEM degrees
Here are a few more examples of Laser Pegs S.T.E.M. (Science Technology Engineering Math) Benefits
- Enhances Creative Reasoning
- Improves Hand/Eye Coordination
- Promotes Cognitive Development
- Encourages Communication and Teamwork
- Inspires Creativity and Model Building
- Develops Math and Reasoning Skills
- Education Educational Kits learning S.T.E.M. STEM
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration also has implemented programs and curricula to advance STEM education in order to replenish the pool of scientists, engineers and mathematicians who will lead space exploration in the 21st century.
After-school STEM programs children learn what the most promising practices are and how to implement them to increase the chance of student success.
Continuing S.T.E.M. education has expanded to the post-secondary level through masters programs. Laser Pegs enhance, encourage and compliment all STEM Programs.
