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?

Fantastic Customer Service!
We ordered this set for our son who loves building with K'Nex. I was sure he would love the Roller Coaster Set. Unfortunately, when it reached us, not all of the pieces were in the box. I contacted customer service and they fixed it right away! I am glad to know that I can shop at Rainbow Resource Center with confidence!
