Purpose of workshop: To provide a whole day of K'NEX engineering projects for teachers and educators, either on their own, or together with their students. If students participate, they may be of any age group, eg KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4, post-16, or families.
Who is the workshop for: Primary or Secondary school teachers, FE/HE Lecturers, and other educators (eg in family learning, children's clubs and childcare schemes).
Prior knowledge required: No prior experience with KNEX is required, and you definitely do not need to be "good at technology"!
Workshop content: The standard workshop lasts a full day. Typical workshop content is either:
1. Building structures with K'NEX (eg a sports stadium), or 2. Building machines with K'NEX (eg a rope-spinning machine).
The exact workshop content can be varied according to the age and experience of the participants.
Practical sessions: Delegates will work in small groups for the practical sessions, which are designed to be light-hearted and enjoyable as well being informative.
