Introduce students to hands-on design and modeling. KELVIN's Beams and Triangles System provides you with the tools to get started. Students will plan, design, construct, measure and test their products. Students build their working models from wood beams, triangles, wheels and glue.
Build working models like:
Advanced students can motorize prototypes with motors and batteries. Interdisciplinary connections are made through mathematics, science, research, design, construction and manufacturing processes. Includes activities, sample projects, construction techniques and more. Ideal for grades 1 through college.
We believe that the virtual world should not take over a student's need to learn to use hand tools, to cut and drill the material used for construction. Construction materials, project components (like wheels, electronics, solar, plastic, etc.), hand tools and jigs can be found throughout this site.
