Go green and bring science to life with the K'NEX Investigating Solar Energy set.
Learn how to convert the energy of the sun into electricity, to power working K'NEX models.
Builds three renewable energy models:
♦ solar car ♦ solar crank man ♦ solar shuttle ride
Includes 128 K'NEX parts, including a solar panel and motor, capacitor and 5 gear wheels.
Comprehensive instruction book and teacher's guide. Packaged in a strong storage tub with snap-on lid.
Teacher's guide provides a program of study that uses hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning. Students are encouraged to build, investigate, and evaluate concepts, ideas and designs.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education focuses on concepts taught through problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and critical thinking. STEM Education requires students to be active participants in the learning. K'NEX models offer hands-on learning opportunities that encourage scientific inquiry, investigation and experimentation. Our inquiry-based lessons challenge students as they build, investigate, problem solve, discuss, and evaluate scientific and design principles in action.
Supports 2 students.
