Product Description

Investigate simple machines through hands-on learning with the K'NEX Education Exploring Machines set! Designed to expand upon middle school student's knowledge of simple machines concepts, this set provides instructional models for students to investigate, explore and experiment with. Students will work together to construct 30 fully-functioning replicas of real-world machines, up to four at a time, and analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information. The Teacher's guide includes Student Inquiry Sheets and Worksheets for 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. The K'NEX Education Exploring Machines Set includes 1432 K'NEX parts, building instructions, and a comprehensive Teacher's Guide CD, all packaged in a strong plastic tray with snap-on lid for easy classroom storage. This set supports 8-12 students working in teams and is recommended for 5th through 9th grade classrooms.

Awesome Interactive Models!!!

Comments about K'NEX Education - Exploring Machines:

I received an exploring machines kit through our Science department at school that was just sitting in a cabinet and it was brand new. I teach 6th grade Math & Science and this kit is amazing. We will be studying Simple Machines in a few weeks and I took home the kit to check it out. I put together the hammer, screwdriver, archimedes screw, and am now working on the elevator. My niece, a 2nd grader loved it so much, she asked me to bring it back so she could make her own version of an elevator. I really like how well constructed and strong the pieces are and  when they are all connected together how life like the end products are and that they really work. It's very cool.  I know my students will really like to work on putting together these simple machines. I am just trying to figure out if there are enough pieces for  9 small groups to work on them. I need to get at least one more set, if not two. If I win the contest, I will be using it to buy another exploring machines set for my classroom.       I think it's definitely worth the money and anyone will learn from making the many items listed. Hours of strategic fun. Not for the faint of heart.

Great Product

Comments about K'NEX Education - Exploring Machines:

I really found this product a challenge. It took me multiple attempts to make it the way it was intended. Also I like how Knex now caters to older and more complex thinks, evident in this product.
