Motion and Design
We recently finished our Einstein unit on Motion and Design. We used K'Nex pieces to construct vehicles that needed to be powered by a force to move. We explored gravity, rubber band power, air power, and the use of a propeller before time ran out and we had to send the unit back. However, we had a lot of fun with it this year, and learned a lot about forces, friction, and energy!

That is so cool we are getting started on our science fair projects that sounds like a cool one.

Cool article! I remember when I was in first grade and was doing a machine unit with gravity and motions! I remember that I made this crane that picked up markers or crayons and I made a K'Nex car. Once again, nice article!=D

Wow! I used to use K'nex all the time. I used them to make vehicles, robots with wheels, and space vehicles. What else can you make?
