K’nex building kits came out a few decades ago, which means there are K’nex sets for the taking in people’s attics in your community. This makes them an easy add to your makerspace.
- Ask for K’nex donations in your next email communication, or post a sign outside your makerspace with a box.
- Designate a table for K’nex in your makerspace.
- Set students loose to create contraptions, creatures, coasters, and more.
- To get them started, they can download plans online or view photos of the creative things that other builders have made.
