Solid learning. Build 16 fully-functioning replicas of real-world machines.

Kids will learn and learn, and learn some more with the K'NEX Education Simple and Compound Machines Building Set. Designed to expand upon knowledge of simple machines concepts.

Kids investigate, explore and experiment with the K'NEX simple machine models as they analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information. Inquiry-based learning challenges students to build, investigate, problem solve, discuss, and evaluate scientific and design principles in action.

A Teacher's Guide included and Student Inquiry Sheets and Worksheets expound on the models highlighted. Student Worksheets ask questions about the machine being investigated and present challenges that can be used to help students think more deeply about the concepts involved.

Aligned to STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Standards - the quality building materials included have a front row focus on learning.

STEM Education focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts taught through problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and critical thinking. STEM Education requires students to be active participants in the learning!

    Excellent kit - some connections are HARD to make
    Posted 11/17/2014 by Dan

    My 5 year old and I love building the various products. There are a lot of connections he can make by himself, but there are certain pieces that have to snap together in ways that are very difficult and require a lot of strength, even for an adult. So far we've build the hammer, the elevator, and the fan. I think the fan is his favorite because it uses gears, and has variations so you can try out different differentials and clearly see how they work. The storage bin it comes with it a great feature.
