The K'NEX Education Computer Control Set provides exciting, dynamic materials and lessons that will offer students a program of study that uses hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning. Students will design and write programs to control five dynamic K'NEX models. Once the models are constructed and the programs are written, students will progress through a series of meaningful learning Tasks and Challenge Activities designed to guide their learning and challenge them to use critical thinking and problem solving skills.
The Teacher's Guide outlines a series of 5 comprehensive lessons that introduce students to computer control technology, writing programs to operate models, and rigorous content in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Science process skills, the engineering design process, the core concepts of technology, science inquiry, and the role of invention and innovation in technology are emphasized throughout the lessons.
The set comes complete with 699 K'NEX® parts, enough to build 5 computer controlled models, one at a time, a K'NEX Interface and software (with site license), motors, push button switches, reed switches, a buzzer, and LEDs. Grades 4 - 6. Building instructions and teacher's guide aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math standards included. Packaged in a strong storage tub with snap-on lid.
STEM Education focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts taught through problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and critical thinking. STEM Education requires students to be active participants in the learning. K'NEX® models offer hands-on learning opportunities that encourage scientific inquiry, investigation and experimentation. Our inquiry-based lessons challenge students as they build, investigate, problem solve, discuss, and evaluate scientific and design principles in action. Aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math standards.
