This project engages students in STEM concepts as they create assistive carts or scooters for injured or handicapped stuffed animals using K’nex. K’nex is a flexible building tool that promotes student creativity and problem solving. Students work with partners to explore essential questions to create their models and run through a series of tests. If the tests find a flaw in the design, students can adjust their model to address the flaw ultimately producing a functioning mobility tool. Students then present their project and learning in a format of their choice; written, spoken or digitally.
This grant was funded through the the Bosch BE3ST Grant Program in partnership with the EEF.
