“Go green and bring STEM concepts to life with the K'NEX® Investigating Solar Energy Set!

With our guide by our side we set out to create a car run off of solar power and took the time to learn what solar power is and how it works.
The K’NEX Solar Energy Set included 128 K'NEX® parts – enough to build 6 renewable energy models, two at a time. Building instructions & comprehensive teacher's guide aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Standards included.
It didn’t take us long to get our included solar panel’s “charged” up and our first creation built. It was a joy to see my children’s face light up with wonder as there car came to life; a rewarding experience not only in education, but in hard work. It was a pleasant surprise to see that something they created was now powered and motoring across the floor.
