    What does 3,447 K'NEX parts look like? Like this! This set is especially designed for classroom use, with enough pieces to build 60 simple machine models. The set is designed to include hands-on learning about gears, levers, pulleys, wheels and axles, inclined planes, wedge-and-screws, and more. For example, the guide on gears includes 13 projects, including spur gears, bicycle gears, crown gears, rack and pinion gears, worm gears, planetary gears, simple transmissions, car windows, lawnmowers, egg beaters, food mixers, axles and differentials, and clocks. Wow. Each project features (almost wordless) diagrams with images of what the finished project should look like, lists of the parts needed (no problems there!), and assembly diagrams to help guide the building process. The 3,447 piece set is designed to be enough for 15 students working simultaneously as teams. We really like building with K'NEX and we don't like running out of K'NEX pieces, so this is definitely the way to go for us. The set also includes a comprehensive teacher's guide aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Standards, and comes with a strong storage tub with snap-on lid, which is really easy and convenient to store or bring out to play with. Our kids are having a great time with this seemingly limitless amount of pieces and the motor is one of their favorite parts, too.

    My students love Knex and constantly ask when they can build again! They love to just freely build as well. It has added a level of engineering and design to my classroom which required so little input from me. I'm enjoying watching my students get excited about gears, gear ratios, and the complexity of building and design, simply by using Knex.

    I had the big ball factory as a kid. After receiving this and building the factory myself, I remembered how much fun it is to build with K'NEX toys. I plan on buying more and building something really intricate for others to enjoy watching on the net.

    I grew up with K'Nex since they first started, and this set is very much like the old original sets. Very sturdy pieces. This set will teach you a lot about physics and machines, and give great insight for construction of big structures. Plus it's crazy fun!
