Hot activities!

Comments about K'NEX Education - Investigating Solar Energy:

I used this kit with my 3rd thru 5 graders as part of my renewable energy unit. The crank man was built by 4th graders, a bit challenging and a few class periods but they did it. The shuttle ride is very easy to build and quick. We had races with the solar car on the basketball court and they could see first hand how the angle of the sun affected the speed of the car. Great kit!

Great for teaching kids about science

By Cher

Comments about K'NEX Education - Investigating Solar Energy:

I tried this set out with my boys (5 and 6 years old) and while they didn't get it yet, they had a blast building it.  The sets instructions are easy to follow and you get 128 total pieces to build with.  You can build up to two sets at a time.  The set is great to show kids about solar energy and start getting their minds thinking about science.  Since you are building specific models, I'd say this would be better for one child at a time.  I do love though how everything fits nicely inside the durable plastic container, which makes for easy storage. I received this product to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
