K'NEX Education models offer proactive opportunities for children to develop scientific inquiry, investigation, and experimentation skills. Our inquiry-based lessons challenge aspiring students as they build, investigate, problem-solve, discuss, and evaluate scientific and design principles in action.
All K'NEX Education sets come with either a comprehensive guide for teachers or an experiment guide for student-led learning. All lesson plans and experiment guides are written by expert educators and feature hands-on, inquiry-based projects that engage students in today's busy classroom.
K'NEX Education sets allow students to build replicas of real-world machines and other models, and through the lesson plans and experiments, to gain a concrete understanding of the principles that make them work.
