Student teams create vehicles from K'NEX® building pieces and use them to explore effects of force, friction, and wind resistance on distance and speed. Teams work as they use washers as weights to quantify the force applied through a string to pull their vehicles, wood blocks to quantify a vehicle's load, etc.
Unit kit comes with a Teacher's Guide, 15 reusable Student Investigations books, 8 copies of STC BOOK: Motion and Design, and the materials needed for a class of 30. Added value: 8 KIDS DISCOVER Nonfiction Readers. Refurbishment Set replenishes kit consumables.
