The Educational Settings section of this website provides advice and support to teachers and educators who wish to deliver their own K'NEX and Kid K'NEX sessions, in a wide range of educational settings.
Some educational organisations, however, prefer to:
a) visit a centre that can provide K'NEX sessions to their students, or
b) schedule a visit from an experienced K'NEX professional to deliver K'NEX sessions to their students in their own premises, or
c) schedule an experienced K'NEX professional to deliver K'NEX sessions to their students via Zoom (or similar) .
The K'NEX User Group maintains the list below of K'NEX Session providers, who can assist you if this is your preferred approach.
