Children use intellect and creativity galore while planning, mapping and building 3-D models of cities using Scientific Explorer® Young Architect™ City Planner. It's fun on a grand scale in which imagination and problem-solving are used to equally great effect. The planning phase starts by taping a piece of tracing paper atop the mat base, the 18- X 24-inch grid of 1-inch squares that helps you map out cities and decide where roads and buildings will go. A stencil template is used to design roads. Tracing-guides make it a simple matter to add trees, crossings, train tracks and other icons. You then use the set's colored pencils to shade areas before placing 3-D buildings and bridges on your map. Building shapes snap together in various configurations, while reusable vinyl decals add detail to the homes, offices, storefronts, fire stations, hospitals and high-rises that spring up. Building your dream city can be much closer than you think.

When you're done, you can design a completely different city by grabbing another large sheet of blank paper! Every city is different and offers a different experience for the people who live there. Now you can build up lots of different cities, thinking like an Urban City Planner!
