The fascinating K'NEX Gears building set allows 1-2 children to build 3 geared models: a Crank Fan, a Car Window and an Egg Beater.
The printed instruction booklet provides instructions for the crank fan, and details of some interesting experiments that can be performed using this model.
Instructions and experiments for the other two models are then available online.
When used in an educational setting, the set will further the children's knowledge and understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) concepts, including gear configurations, gear ratios, rotational speed and mechanical advantage.
Age with parental help: 6+
