Rated 5 out of 5 by from A total hit! I purchased this intro to bridge kit and two tubs of assorted parts. The bridges were an instant hit with the students and helped them to understand the ideas of design and function. The plans were pretty easy to follow. I used the different models as a pre-task so that students would then be able to design a truss bridge from straws. I have grades 2 and 3 and at first thought it would be difficult for them. They did great! there was a little challenge, but as an educator I wanted some challenge for them. I have a harder time manipulating the pieces than they do. I highly recommend K'Nex and encourage children to explore three dimensional building.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Building Bridges is a great team builder I am a children's librarian and have used this set three times over the past few months for a building program for 8 children ages 7 and up. With 8 sets, the children were able to build their own beam bridge, and then work together to build some of the more complex bridges. Most of the children meet for the first time at the beginning of the session, and in addition to learning about structures, forces, etc, the children all seem to bond over this particular building project. I have had other (non-K'Nex) building programs, and this is the best building exercise by far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great introductiontypes of bridges I've bought this set for my daughters (5y and 8y) and they loved it. You can build about a dozen different bridges which helps you understand a lot about the different types of bridges and their usage. You can associate them with real structures and learn a bit about the mechanics behind the bridges, what makes them strong, what are their weak points, etc. The set itself is very good quality, nothing has broken so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! We bought several of these kits for a hands-on intro to engineering class in a museum setting, and it was a great decision. The educator's guide is a great resource and really takes the kit to the next level. It turns play into learning, which is so important for students.
