Building Bridges is a great team builder

By Stephanielibrarian

from Kingston, MA, United States

Comments about K'NEX Education - Intro To Structures: Bridges:

I am a children's librarian and have used this set three times over the past few months for a building program for 8 children ages 7 and up. With 8 sets, the children were able to build their own beam bridge, and then work together to build some of the more complex bridges. Most of the children meet for the first time at the beginning of the session, and in addition to learning about structures, forces, etc, the children all seem to bond over this particular building project. I have had other (non-K'Nex) building programs, and this is the best building exercise by far.

A total hit!

By TeacherPatty

from Western Kentucky

Comments about K'NEX Education - Intro To Structures: Bridges:

I purchased this intro to bridge kit and two tubs of assorted parts. The bridges were an instant hit with the students and helped them to understand the ideas of design and function. The plans were pretty easy to follow. I used the different models as a pre-task so that students would then be able to design a truss bridge from straws. I have grades 2 and 3 and at first thought it would be difficult for them. They did great! there was a little challenge, but as an educator I wanted some challenge for them. I have a harder time manipulating the pieces than they do. I highly recommend K'Nex and encourage children to explore three dimensional building.

Cornerstone of my STEM lab

By AB61

from Bradley, IL

Comments about K'NEX Education - Intro To Structures: Bridges:

I've been using these bridge sets for 7 years in my STEM(Middle School) lab. Students build several samples using instructions then design and build their own bridges. The kids love it!

Awesome Foundation for Bridge Building

By saleiterman

from Little Rock, AR

Comments about K'NEX Education - Intro To Structures: Bridges:

I used these kits in my STEM class as pre-work for the students to build balsa bridges, modeled after the International Bridge Building competition. After spending a week building all the bridges in the kit, the kids built better bridges than the classes the year before. There are great review questions with each bridge, and the CD that comes with each one are very helpful too.

Great introductiontypes of bridges

By Dimitris

from Switzerland

Comments about K'NEX Education - Intro To Structures: Bridges:

I've bought this set for my daughters (5y and 8y) and they loved it. You can build about a dozen different bridges which helps you understand a lot about the different types of bridges and their usage. You can associate them with real structures and learn a bit about the mechanics behind the bridges, what makes them strong, what are their weak points, etc. The set itself is very good quality, nothing has broken so far.
