Exciting STEM Set! The K'NEX® Education Building Simple Machines Class Set will allow you to introduce
your students to the scientific concepts associated with simple machines: levers and pulleys, wheel & axle, inclined planes, gears, wedge and screw. Students will acquire skills using a hands-on, inquiry-based approach to information and concepts. Working cooperatively, students are encouraged to interact with each other as they build, investigate, discuss, and evaluate scientific principles in action. The Teacher's Guide provides the information and resources needed to build students' understanding of scientific concepts and channel their inquiries into active and meaningful learning experiences.
Set includes 2,199 K'NEX® parts – enough to build 15 simple machine models, up to 8 at a time for full class instruction. Supports 16 - 24 students working in teams. Grades 3 - 5. Building instructions and comprehensive teacher's guide aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Standards included. Packaged in a strong storage tub with snap-on lid.
