      Off to the races with the K'NEX Education Forces, Energy and Motion Set. Designed to address critical science, technology and engineering concepts in the middle school classroom, this set provides instructional models that will enhance students' understanding of issues related to forces, energy, and motion. Students work together to follow sound experimental procedures in data collection as they build, test, and evaluate several different vehicles, including racers, rollers, and wind powered cars. Inertia, force, speed, and friction are explored as students determine the effects that changing variables have on energy using flywheel, spring, and battery motors. Students will be expected to craft fair test procedures, create meaningful data displays, make reasonable and data supported reports, and analyze their collected data in light of the problem at hand. The K'NEX Education Forces, Energy & Motion Set includes 442 K'NEX pieces, three different types of motors, a Teacher's Guide CD, and building instructions to build 11 working vehicles. This set is designed to support 16-12 students working cooperatively in teams to build up to 4 models at a time, and is recommended for use in 5th through 9th grade classrooms. All parts of this set come packaged in a strong plastic tray with snap-on lid for easy storage in the classroom.

       The thing I love about K'nex is that they go few steps above "building blocks" and teach kids beyond basic math, science, and engineering.  This kit was a great way to entertain kids over the holiday break.  There were plenty of pieces to work with and almost limitless combinations to make.  The instructions were easy to follow, but the kids had their own ideas (which is another reason I love this product)!  I recommend K'nex for any type of child who is either inclined creatively or in the sciences or needs help in those fields.
