DynaRoll Educational Construction Toy


DynaRoll is an educational construction toy, designed to engender a positive attitude towards science by enabling the user to build their own chain reactions. It is aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 11; that is, children at Key Stage 2. DynaRoll consists of a wall-mounted board and a set of ‘components’, each of which constitutes a step in a chain reaction process, while demonstrating a scientific principle from the Key Stage 2 syllabus. A grid of holes is formed on the board, providing a mounting surface for the components. Depending on the arrangement of the components, different chain reactions can be assembled. The construction of a successful reaction relies on a practical, experimental approach. [Fall 2015]
