Renewable Energy STEM Kit
Recommended ages: grades 5 and older
The K'nex Renewable Energy STEM Kit will bring a hands-on approach to the understanding of solar, hydro and wind energy. Cadets and students will investigate concepts by constructing working models out of the 583 parts -- enough to build three solar, three hydro and three wind models at the same time. Using this kit, cadets and students will be able to demonstrate force, motion, work and power. This kit allows participants to work cooperatively while building, problem-solving, discussing, designing and evaluating energy sources. Included with the Renewable Energy STEM Kit is a comprehensive teacher's guide and building instructions that will assist in the planning and implementation of this product. Concepts built with this kit will enhance knowledge of renewable energy that can lead to careers in engineering, technology and/or science.
