Read the funny story of two inquisitive young engineers, Ty and Karlie, and their family’s robots, Huxley and Remus. Build simple models of the boats they encounter in the story. The boats actually float on water, making for fun and easy experiments around the sink or bathtub. Over the course of the story, the robots face new challenges and have to build a new boat to solve each problem. They build a sailboat, riverboat, speedboat, fireboat, tugboat, freighter, catamaran, and a hydroplane. As you follow the story, you can build models of the ten boats featured in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together.
