I grew up with 2 younger brothers and a sister. One of my brothers was that ‘tinkering’ child. I remember one morning hearing a bunch of commotion in our family room and going out to see who was in trouble. My brother had dismantled the vacuum. It was in pieces. I knew he was in big trouble. However, I remember my parents not severely punishing him. In those days my parents did not have much money and replacing a vacuum is a huge deal. Looking back, they decided he needed more building toys, not a huge punishment. The BOSEbuild Speaker Cube is great for those children.
The BOSEbuild Speaker Cube is a build and learn bluetooth speaker that connects to Apple devices. My son and I built this and we used my iPhone playlist to play his songs through it when we were done.
Explore the concepts of:
- Magnets and electromagnets
- How sound works
- How speakers work
- Frequency and waveforms
The build is all done with an app that connects to the speaker with bluetooth and guides your child along as he or she builds and learns. Along the way there are videos to further explain the concepts as they move through the process.
My son is 8 and moved through this just fine. He is excited to go to school and tell his teacher he built his own speaker and knows what is inside. He wants to ask to take it to show over a science lesson day sometime soon.
It really is a great feeling for them at the end. The sound is as you would expect from BOSE. It is loud and powerful. Once built, your child can play with the sound equalizer, colors and outer design to fully customize it.
