What are Momentix Toys?

A toy kit containing the key connecting pieces (levers, pulleys, and ramps) for chain reactions machines. Our pieces, Idea Book, and Challenge cards give kids a launching point for their contraptions, while introducing them to engineering, design, and physics concepts they can use while they plan and build.

What are Rube Goldberg Machines? What do they have to do with learning?

Rube Goldberg Machines are complex contraptions that work like chain reactions to complete a simple task. Watch some of our favorites and learn more about how these contraptions facilitate learning.

Can I buy one? When do you launch?

On January 31, 2020 we launched a limited-run of our Co-Inventor Kit on Kickstarter. Currently, we're in the midst of making kits by hand and fulfilling these orders. We plan to open our site to pre-orders for our first factory run Summer 2020.

What is Kickstarter and how does it work?

Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. You back a project to help it come to life and are compensated with various unique rewards. We participated in Kickstarter’s make/100 campaign: an open call to share a creative idea as a limited run of 100. Since 2017, over 1,000 creators have taken part, kicking off the new year with unique ideas at a doable scale. Learn more about Kickstarter.

How does Momentix teach physics/STEM?

Our Idea Booklet breaks down the Engineering Design process, making it accessible to kids as the plan, invent, and build their machines. It also introduces basic mechanics concepts like kinetic energy and momentum so kids know they’re learning physics as they create.

7.

Who is Momentix intended for?

Momentix was designed with curious kids ages 7-12 in mind, but we've seen people of all ages create with it.

8.

What is the Momentix Vision?

Our Vision at Momentix is to build a world where fun doesn’t necessarily mean more, where people aren’t afraid to try and fail, and where physics can be accessible and appealing to everyone.
