    There are so many ways to use the K'NEX Education: Renewable Energy Building Set it is almost mind boggling! When you purchase this set you are literally getting many, many toys, educational projects, as well as multiple opportunities to teach a single child or an entire classroom of children. K'Nex sets are designed with parts that can be used in tandem with any other K'nex sets (much like Legos but better) So you are also adding to your K'New collection if you have any other pieces or sets. Once you are finished building these kits the parts can be used to build anything desired. Of course Renewable Energy Building Set is classroom ready. It's designed to present STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) ideas and foundations to your kids. This set is also the perfect way to bring multiple, hands on, learning projects for the home-schooler as well. Not a professional educator? Don't feel daunted. Everything is there to guide you along in your teaching process, too. There are three educational booklets included in multiple languages. The booklets are explicit with color photos and easy to understand directions for building each product. Each booklet teaches three projects. There is also a Teacher's Guide on CD-rom. 1) Renewable Energy Water Powered Models: a hydroelectric generator, a hydro car, and a grist mill. 2) Renewable Energy Solar Powered Models: a solar car, a crank man, a shuttle ride 3) Renewable Energy Wind Powered Models: a windmill, a sail car, a wind-powered water lift This set is recommended for ages 11 and up. Please note there are electrical parts and solar panels that will require adult / teacher supervision even if you feel your kids are smart enough to build these kits on their own. I can't think of a better way to teach than by to allow the kids to actually DO, watch and learn. I highly recommend this set for families to play together, classroom teachers, and even science buffs to share knowledge with older kids. RECOMMENDED!

    My students loved building the different models that came with the set. They then used the simple machine kits to build the simple machine and retro fit the solar panels on to make them work!

    I bought this set for my classroom and it has been great. The students have made wind, solar, and water powered machines using the instructions and then their own ideas. It has been a great enrichment activity as well as part of our curriculum.

    My students are actively engaged, more than I have ever witnessed. These kits are simply amazing and a fabulous example of incorporating STEM in the classroom. I highly recommend K'Nex education for any and all science classrooms! The lessons were spectacular and the student labs are phenomenal! A must purchase!

    Educational and fun learning "green power"

    This set is made by a leading educational manufacturer in children's learning and this set does not disappoint! Children will be wowed by this product which demonstrating green energy they put in action. This set can be used in a classroom setting, at home for home school students or any child for knowledge and just plain fun. This set is used to make wind, solar and water powered machines which actually run demonstrating green power. What great fun to build a solar powered car and see it move!, or the water wheel which turns! These are just two of the models which are so engaging. The set comes in a hard plastic storage tub and contains 583 plastic pieces. I do wish the tub was a little larger though as it's somewhat difficult to fit the pieces back in. The set can build 9 models, 3 at a time. The set comes with a CD which is very informative from the learning aspect. The 22 page manual however is designed more to show how the models are built. The pictures show the final results with clear diagrams. The instructions are clear and the models are somewhat easy to make with the plastic pieces which are simple to connect. The product is rated for ages 10+ for grades 5-9. I would say the age range could be older as well. It was fun for me too! The only downfall I find is the price being as it's mostly made of plastic. I know I should deduct something from the rating for the price point but I just can't due to the invaluable lessons it teaches. Not only is it one of the best learning aids I've ever seen but it's so much fun to put together and play with.
