To reiterate my question: How do you teach children Science Logic with using a rocket, a laser and a mirror? Laser Maze Jr by ThinkFun! In this post we will show you how Science Logic can be so easy to learn and so much fun for children. Take a look at how we analyze, strategize and execute logic puzzles. Laser Maze Jr is such an amazing game! It is one of my son’s favorite games. He is five and a half years old and is absolutely engrossed in this game. He can’t get enough of it. We are so glad we were able to review it! Let me give you more information about it before I explain to you how it is played and how we used it in our homeschool. Laser Maze Jr is a super awesome game grid using a laser that is attached to one side of the grid. The game includes movable objects (rocket targets, satellite mirrors, space rock blockers and a beam splitter). It also comes with 40 challenges, ranging from easy to medium to hard and then super hard. The instruction manual is very easy to follow and very helpful. The mission is to use Science and Logic to strategically place the movable objects in such a way that they will redirect the laser to light up the rocket targets and “send them home to space.” If the rocket targets light up, then you have completed your mission. Progress from level to level and watch your child soar when it comes to logic. To learn more, click here. Above, you can see how my son was arranging the movable objects to redirect the laser in order to light up not one, but two rocket targets! First, he moved things around a few times and eventually got it. I dimmed the lights as bit to show you how it works, but once I dimmed the lights almost all the way was when you could really see the game better. On to top right of the grid, you can see where the laser come out. It always beams straight out, so it is up to the player to place mirrors, blockers or a beam splitter to redirect the laser toward the rocket targets. Here are the twenty double-sided cards with challenges or missions to play. These Laser Maze Jr cards are in four level of difficulty: easy, medium, hard and super hard. It is fantastic to see how much room there is to play and what is more, once a player completes a mission, he/she can move on, but it is fun to come back to older/easier missions. I hope you decide to give Laser Maze Jr a try. You will LOVE to watch your children’s faces when they analyze, study and solve missions. I know that it is priceless because I get the privilege to watch my son learn Science Logic every day. He is learning and developing his brain while having fun. And even his Sister helps him by handing him the movable object that he need for his missions.
Laser Maze Jr. is for ages 6 and up (unless you feel that your children are ready, like in our case). Check out some more games by ThinkFun. I am impressed by everything that they have to offer. Their games aren’t made simply for fun’s sake, but they actually create amazing games that make children (and adults) think and develop their brain.
