What is the coolest part about being a 2013 K'NEXpert?
Going to the factory to see where and how K’NEX are made.
What advice do you have for other kids who want to be K’NEXperts?
I like to start with an idea. My first idea for this year was a map of the United States. I started with Texas and Oklahoma, but when I tried to make Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, these states were only one K’NEX piece. So I tried a new idea. We were on the way home from school, and a big milk tanker went by, and I had a new idea. It started out with the milk truck, and I just kept having fun so I build a barn, a tractor, some cows and hay, some trees, and some ducks for my pond. I work on my projects for a few days. Each day I make improvements until I am happy or I start a new project.
