Geomag Mechanics Challenge STEM Toy Review


Geomag‘s Mechanics Challenge is a STEM Toy to teach kids physics. It works like building blocks, created for 7 years and older. But take care, because you have moving parts – in this case, a cannon and cannon fodder!

Geomag Mechanics pieces

The pieces use a locking mechanism that feel like a 3D jigsaw puzzle. The one that connect horizontally (sideways) use circular nibs while the ones that connect vertically (above and below) use square nibs.

The cannon uses gravity and a magnetic piece to “shoot” metal ball bearings, but you need to work on your aim. If you get good at it, you might even hit the moving target that’s a part of game #3!
