K'nex
Knex is an exciting hands-on Engagement for kids.  Students can start with basic hand-eye coordination skills and continue to building and testing  sophisticated projects.  Comprehension and interepretation skills are developed using the 2-D ‘Construction Manuals’ to build 3-D models.  All of it fun for kids… Take lots of photos and videos.  Documentation and analysis of their work is almost as much fun as the construction itself.
