I am using this product with my 6th grade advanced math students to go along with lessons on physics, area, geometry, etc. We have been using it for a few days now and they love it!! The activities that go along with it are great for teachers and have a lot of interesting information to share.
K'Nex Bridge and Building Edcuational Sets

I bought both the bridge and building sets. They are similar in contents - one comes with instructiions to build replicas of 8 real world bridges, the other, to build replicas of famous buildings. The bridge set includes only normal K'nex components. The building kit includes Lego-like blocks for foundations and adapters to connect the blocks to the other K'nex elements
Review of K'NEX Education - Real Bridge Building
Posted 1/13/2009 by Mom to 3
Like all things K'Nex, this is first rate. We've gotten my son K'Nex sets before, but they were not in the education series. This set is very impressive. There are enough pieces to build a number of different bridges at the same time. My son is using them for a science fair project testing the different designs of bridges. Comes with two storage containers and books.
