Discover the power of levers and pulleys through the FUN of K'NEX construction!

Open up the detailed instruction book and immediately kids start learning by building eight K'NEX models of real-life tools and machines.

Build a seasaw and learn all about the basics of a lever: "The effort and resistance, one on each side of the fulcrum, move in opposite directions. When one goes up, the other goes down."

Construct a wheelbarrow to learn about the second class of levers where the weight is moved to the fulcrum, making it easier to lift.

Then, using the included strings and wheels, start learning all about the fascinating power of pulleys.

Discover the basics by building a functional flagpole. Get even more complex as you build a sailboat and a Block and Tackle contraption.

Did you know that with just a few strong pulleys and some rope, you can lift something as big and heavy as a truck's engine?

Complete with easy-to-follow, illustrated instructions and detailed explanations for each mechanism you build, the K'NEX Education Levers and Pulleys set turns basic engineering into hands-on creative fun!

    Levers and Pulleys
    Posted 9/14/2008 by Audrey M. Ward

    This was given as a birthday gift to an eight year old boy. We have many k'nex at my daughters home and I have been the contributor of many sets. I can't ever say that I've been unhappy with any k'nex toys.
