GRANT OF THE MONTH

Introduction to Design and Creation with K’nex

Rebecca Cole and Third Grade Teachers, Isbister Elementary  Total Grant Awarded: $1,120

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.
