MOTORIZED TANK RUNNERS: Tank – 8 Models in 1 Kit
Power over treacherous terrain with these motorized light up Laser Pegs® Tank Runners. Build from the 8 models shown or optimize your own surveillance vehicle for that top-secret recon mission. This rugged power base lets you build directly on its surface with Laser Pegs® and construction bricks so that you can make any of your creations cross the unknown. Illuminate and explore with the Laser Pegs® Tank Runners kit. Just install 3 AAA batteries (batteries not included) into the Runners Power Base to illuminate your Laser Pegs®. Change the switch on the bottom of the base to cycle through these 4 settings: power off, illuminate while still, illuminate while in motion, flash while in motion. The speed of the Runners® can also be changed to Fast or Slow, and a hitch on the front and back of the base allows you to hook your model to any other Runners™ Power Base. With the runners tank, your imagination is your only constraint!
Building blocks are always great playtime option for kids. They really encourage little ones to use their imaginations, and help to refine motor skills. When they get a little older, they want something little more exciting and challenging, the Laser Pegs 8 in 1 Tank Runner is just the ticket! This cool set takes classic blocks to the next level, thanks to its motorized base. Kids build upon the base to create wild new vehicles to race, and when they’re done, the base actually drives around on its own! They can follow the suggested designs or go crazy with creating their own designs – either way, they’re sure to have a blast for hours on end!

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.
