K’NEX Education STEM EXPLORATIONS: Gears Building Set Building Kit
Explore STEM concepts while building different geared models! The K’NEX Education STEM EXPLORATIONS: Gears Building Set Building Kit provides elementary-school aged children with an engaging and energizing way to further their knowledge and understanding of science, technology, engineering, and math concepts.
Build Unique Geared Models
With over 140 parts included in this set, a single child or a team of two children can build three unique geared models: a crank fan, a car window, and an egg beater. These models allow children to explore the principles of gear configurations, gear ratios, rotational speed, mechanical advantage, and more.
Hands-On, Inquiry-Based Experiments
Once the models are built, students can dive deeper into STEM learning with the help of a downloadable booklet. This booklet guides students through three hands-on, inquiry-based experiments for each of the models. By conducting these experiments, students will gain a practical understanding of the concepts they have learned.
Aligned to National STEM Standards
The experiment guide provided with the K’NEX Education STEM EXPLORATIONS: Gears Building Set Building Kit is aligned to National STEM standards. This ensures that the content covered in the experiments is relevant and appropriate for grade levels 3-5. Teachers can confidently incorporate this kit into their curriculum, knowing that it meets educational standards.
Engaging and Educational
This building kit not only provides children with a fun and hands-on building experience but also fosters their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. By exploring the world of gears, children develop a deeper understanding of how mechanical systems work and how they can be applied in real-life situations.
The K’NEX Education STEM EXPLORATIONS: Gears Building Set Building Kit is an excellent tool for elementary-school aged children to explore STEM concepts through building and experimentation. With its unique geared models and inquiry-based experiments, this kit offers an engaging and educational experience that aligns with National STEM standards.
