Publisher Description:

Explore STEM concepts while building a working Roller Coaster! Using the materials included in this set, middle-school aged children will be engaged and energized as they further their knowledge and understanding of the science, technology, engineering and math concepts associated with a real-life amusement park ride. The set includes over 500 parts plus a battery-powered motor for a single child or team of 2-3 children to build a working Roller Coaster, plus 2 additional models: a Ramp and a Half-Pipe (each model can be built one at a time). Once built, a downloadable booklet guides students through 3 hands-on, inquiry-based experiments on each of the models. Students will learn about the relationship between time, distance and speed plus much more! The Experiment Guide is aligned to national STEM standards and is appropriate for grade levels 5-9. Requires 2 "AA" batteries, not included.

Category Description for K'Nex STEM Explorations Kits:

Designed to introduce students to basic scientific concepts, these sets can produce several moving models (1 at a time) that emphasize practical mechanics. The emphasis of this line is on small group learning; students put together models and follow the included experiment worksheets, all the while learning about the concept each model represents. Each set can create several different models which are paired with educational experiment worksheets. Gears, Levers & Pulleys, and Vehicles are the simplest kits, while Roller Coaster and Swing Ride are much larger and more complex. Who can possibly avoid having a little fun when making a fully-functional roller coaster?

Fun and educational
My 10 and 12-year-olds really enjoyed putting this together. They followed the directions, and the car never quite made it through the last loop. However, they were able to make some adjustments so that the car would make it all the way to the end. It actually was more of a learning experience that way!
