Gets them off electronics

By areck0001

from Ashland, KY, United States

Comments about K'NEX Education - Simple Machines: Levers and Pulleys:

I bought this for my nephew.  He is 8 years old and already he is on tablets and pc's.  Which is great in many ways but it has it downsides.  Anyways.  I thought this would be something great to bring into ideas of basic machines and basic applied physics.  We can talk about gravity and the movement of the parts.  Figuring it out was most of the fun.  I don't have my own children so I am always looking for something for all my nieces and nephews that can be both educational and fun.  I can always count on Knex to help me with that.  I'd buy this product because you'll have just as much fun as they do.

Comments about K'NEX Education - Simple Machines: Levers and Pulleys:

My 9 year old grandson got so excited over this product and immediately started to create and understand simple machines and levers. He had studied these concepts in school, so this product was perfect to complete his hand on experience. Very pleased with the product.

Perfect for simple machines

By Sciteacher

from Anderson, SC

Comments about K'NEX Education - Simple Machines: Levers and Pulleys:

I purchased several sets of these for my science lab. The students loved building these and seeing how they work. They learned to work in groups and follow simple directions. This is a great way for all students to get involved. The pieces are really durable and there are lots of pieces in case a few go missing.

I had purchased this set several years ago for use in my classroom. It is very versatile and a great hands-on approach to learning simple machines! I love the easy to understand directions (with pictures!!).
