With the K’NEX Education Forces, Energy, and Motion Set, students can learn the basics of engineering while having fun at the same time!
This building toy consists of 442 parts and pieces that are made from sturdy plastic. These include rubber bands, connectors, cogs, gears, springs, batteries, and a fly-wheel motor. The parts are securely stored in a durable tray with a snap-on lid so that the contents won’t spill easily.
The pieces are suited for creating 11 types of vehicles, up to four at a time. With the provided instructions and illustrations, students can create complex toys such as a motorized race car, a wind sail, a motorbike, and many more. This educational classroom kit can be used by 12 to 16 students grouped into three to four teams at a time.
Made for classroom use, this K’NEX building toy teaches kids about STEM concepts such as Newton’s laws of motion, energy transfer, friction, and inertia. The toy can be used for different scientific experiments and to demonstrate how physics and mechanics work. It promotes hands-on learning and inquiry-based projects, thus increasing student engagement and participation. Plus, the kids can have fun by competing in friendly races once they build their vehicles. The colorful designs promote imaginative play and can inspire students to build and design their own automobiles in the future.
The Teacher’s Guide and experiment instructions that are included with this educational playset comply with national standards like ITEEA, NSES, NCTM, NGSS, and Common Core to ensure that students learn about math and science. The instruction manuals were prepared by expert educators.
The K’NEX Forces, Energy, and Motion playset is designed for educators who want to teach the STEM subjects in an engaging manner and for students who are looking for a tool to easily understand concepts like inertia and friction.
442 COLORFUL PIECES – The K’NEX Forces, Energy, and Motion Set comes with 442 colorful pieces that are all made from durable molded plastic. Suited for building 11 types of working vehicles (4 at a time), the parts include rubber bands, tires, cogs, spacers, connectors, and other necessary accessories.
CREATE AMAZING VEHICLES – Aspiring engineers can build various working vehicles with this playset, such as race cars, motorcycles, tricycles, and wind sails. Instructions are included for building each vehicle, and the parts can be stored in a secure tray with a snap-on lid.
LEARN MORE ABOUT MOTION, MECHANICS, AND ENERGY – 12 to 16 students can work together on each classroom kit, building up to four automobiles at a time. This colorful playset introduces aspiring engineers to concepts related to forces, energy, and motion. Through various experiments, they can explore Newton’s laws of motion, inertia, speed, friction, and more.
MOTORIZED BUILDING TOY – The three motors that come with this STEAM toy can be used for building the motorbike and race cars. Aside from learning about mechanics and engineering, students can also have fun by using their creations to compete in friendly races.
STEAMaginationTM – It’s the connection of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & math) with a child’s natural curiosity and creativity and it powers the fun of each and every K’NEX building set. Building with K’NEX puts children on a path towards a fundamental understanding of STEAM/STEM subjects.
