Explore STEM concepts while building a working Roller Coaster!
Using the materials included in this set, middle-school aged children will be engaged and energized as they further their knowledge and understanding of the science, technology, engineering and math concepts associated with a real-life amusement park ride. The set includes over 500 parts plus a battery-powered motor for a single child or team of 2-3 children to build a working Roller Coaster, plus 2 additional models: a Ramp and a Half-Pipe (each model can be built one at a time). Once built, a downloadable booklet guides students through 3 hands-on, inquiry-based experiments on each of the models. Students will learn about the relationship between time, distance and speed plus much more! The Experiment Guide is aligned to national STEM standards and is appropriate for grade levels 5-9. Requires 2 "AA" batteries, not included.
Designed to inspire with multiple builds and experiments.
The STEM Explorations range of products is a lower priced introduction to our Machines range. The sets are a selection of our most popular builds and come with simple students experiments for each model. At a lower price they allow you to try out key areas of the K’NEX Education line or buy multiple low priced sets to teach larger classes. Sets suit 2-3 students working together as opposed to larger working groups.
