About This Activity

Build working replicas of real-world machines — and evaluate scientific principals in action! • Using problem-solving, scientific inquiry, and critical-thinking skills, we’ll apply STEM-based learning concepts to our investigation of K’NEX simple machines. • Through fun and engaging hands-on activities, we’ll explore physics concepts (e.g., applied force, motion) and elementary mechanisms (e.g., levers, pulleys, wheels, axles, inclined planes). • As we explore, discover, and experiment, we’ll build a solid foundation for scientific thinking and understanding. Requirements: Bring a snack and a water bottle for breaks. Kristen Bauer is a first grade teacher at Zuni Elementary School, where she is dedicated to motivating children to learn to the best of their abilities. She has a B.S. in Early Childhood Multicultural Education from UNM.
