Students are provided with an introduction to the exciting world of engineering by using K'nex. This year the challenge is to move an object a certain distance, students can explore all sorts of ideas including slides, conveyor belts, moving arms, catapults etc
K'nex is a very adaptable construction kit that allows pupils to experiment with structures, gears and other mechanisms. 

STEMworks will run the half day workshops and the children from years 5 & 6 will participate, students will work in teams and a winning team will be chosen from each school based on their ability to work together, solve problems, produce a working model and communicate their ideas to each other and the judge. The team with the best solution will be invited to the Gloucestershire K'nex final.
