Inertia, force, speed, and friction are explored as students determine the effects that changing variables have on energy using flywheel, spring, and battery motors. Students will be expected to craft fair test procedures, create meaningful data displays, make reasonable and data supported reports, and analyze their collected data in light of the problem at hand. The K'NEX Education Forces, Energy & Motion Set includes 442 K'NEX pieces, three different types of motors, a Teacher's Guide CD, and building instructions to build 11 working vehicles.

All parts of this set come packaged in a strong plastic tray with snap-on lid for easy storage in the classroom. A comprehensive teacher's guide CD outlines 11 lesson plans that will help guide and facilitate student learning, emphasizing hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning as students build, investigate, discuss, and evaluate concepts, ideas, and designs.
