K’nex Levers and Pulleys Building Set

(K’nex $25)

 

K’nex has been making experiment kits for schools for years. Now they have introduced smaller kits for the home market, sets like this 139-piece Levers and Pulleys construction kit with three different STEM activities that give kids a hands-on experience with building working machines. They also have a Wheels, Axles & inclined Planes kit and a Gears kit ($29.99) with directions for building 7 working gear models, as well. Like all K’nex construction sets these require fine motor skills and some hand strength to go along with following the step by step directions. They suggest these kits are for grades 3-5, we suspect it will be better for the upper range and beyond. For kids who like K’nex, there are a wide range of larger construction sets such as their classic Ferris wheel. 8 & up, up, up.
