K'NEX in the Design & Technology curriculum
K'NEX activities can be carried out by all ages of pupil to meet the requirements of the Design and Technology curriculum, including:
♦ Focused practical tasks ♦ Use of construction kits ♦ Designing skills ♦ Making skills ♦ Understanding structures ♦ Understanding simple mechanisms ♦ Designing and making products ♦ Computer control (see ICT curriculum)
Many K'NEX projects only require K'NEX rods, connectors and wheels, but K'NEX can also be usefully extended with other equipment and materials, for instance:
1. Extra K'NEX parts, such as motors, gear wheels and solar panels. These may be viewed in our K'NEX shop.
2. Simple electrical circuits, such as a K'NEX lighthouse, or K'NEX house with burglar alarms.
3. Paper or card, such as a K'NEX castle with walls, or a K'NEX fan with card blades.
The K'NEX shop also includes numerous K'NEX education sets that explore particular aspects of the Design & Technology curriculum.
