Description

Watch kids turn your classroom into an amusement park with the K'NEX Education STEM Explorations Swing Ride Building Set. Students can build a working swing ride with this educational building set. Each package contains 486 brightly colored pieces, including variously sized connectors, and multiple styles of rods: short, long, straight and curved . Parts can be connected together to create constructions that actually move, thanks to a battery-powered motor that uses two AA batteries (sold separately).

This engineering set can also be used for building two other rides - a boom ride and a Ferris wheel. Playing with this educational toy will unleash children's imaginative skills by letting them build amazing structures with their own two hands. This toy also promotes growth in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) subjects, thanks to its complex and cognitive approach to entertainment. Not only does it offer kids a fun playtime session - it also helps develop their natural curiosity and creativity, and lets them learn not only by thinking about concepts but through hands-on experience as well.

This set allows students to find solutions and turn parts into whole constructions. An experiment guide walks children through the process of building the amusement park ride models. The manual contains complete details on the three inquiry-based engineering projects that are easy for kids to follow and implement. This STEAM toy is specially designed for children in grade levels 5-9, ages 8 and up. It is best used by one to three children at a time, promoting camaraderie, teamwork, and social skills.
