The K'NEX® Education Amusement Park Experience Set provides an opportunity to combine real-world applications with STEM concepts in a middle school classroom environment. Using these materials, students will be engaged and energized as they experience the interrelationships and further their knowledge and understanding of the science, technology, engineering and math concepts associated with such rides and structures. The Teacher's Guide offers a teaching approach that challenges students to take an active role in constructing their own knowledge by engaging in hands-on, inquiry-based learning, and by interacting and collaborating with other students while discussing ideas and concepts, informs the activities associated with the K'NEX® Education Amusement Park set.
The Discover Control Set provides students with an excellent introduction to control systems and allows them to control a series of five models by pressing buttons on the Control Box. The software allows students to write computer programs in easy to understand steps using a model and electronic devices that respond to every press of the buttons. The teacher guide and lessons that will help you guide and facilitate student learning. Using K'NEX parts, the K'NEX Control Box and Discover Control Software with the direction provided in the guide, you will be able to offer students a program of study that uses hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning as students build, program, investigate, and evaluate ideas. The activities provide opportunities for students to learn aspects of linear computer programming while investigating, discovering and applying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills and knowledge.
The K'NEX DNA, Replication and Transcription set is designed to aid in teaching the structure and function of the nucleic acid molecules that make up DNA (deoxyribonucleic acids) and RNA (ribonucleic acids). Excellent demonstration tool at the elementary school level. Curriculum aligned to National Science Education standards for grades 5 – 12.
