STEM Explorations Swing Rides
Students will be engaged and energized as they further their knowledge and understanding of the science, technology, engineering and maths concepts associated with the design of a real life amusement park ride. 2-3 students can build a working swing ride plus a Ferris Wheel and Boom Ride, one at a time. There are three experiments for the students to follow, one for each ride. The set includes a battery powered motor and over 470 K’NEX pieces and is suitable for students aged 8+. Key concepts covered in this set include: the relationship between mass and speed, gearing up and gearing down, understanding patterns and how to gather, analyze and interpret data.
