STEM Education focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts taught through problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and critical thinking. It requires students to be active participants in the learning. Dynamic K’NEX models offer hands-on learning opportunities that encourage scientific inquiry, investigation and experimentation. Models are fully-functioning replicas of real-world machines/structures enabling students to relate the concepts to the world they live in. Color-coded building instructions allow students of varying levels to participate and succeed.
K’NEX Education Teacher guides, with inquiry-based lessons, challenge students as they build, investigate, problem solve, discuss, and evaluate scientific and design principles in action. The lessons include objectives, activities, key concepts, journals and worksheets, everything you need to introduce the concepts and assess what the students have learned. All K’NEX Education Teacher guides are aligned to National Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math standards, including Common Core Mathematics and Next Generation Science Standards.
