The partnership will see the launch of a new science workshop at the park.
K’nex Education and Thorpe Park Resort will launch a new science workshop at the world renowned theme park during National Science Week in March. The interactive workshop will use K’nex Education kits to explore the STEM principles used to create rollercoasters.
Jack Du Pille, Thorpe Park Resort’s education manager, commented: “K’nex Education kits are an ideal way for pupils to investigate the science behind our thrilling rides through problem-solving, discovery and critical thinking. After the 3D learning workshop, pupils will explore the theme park to experience the science of rollercoasters in real life.”
Paul Fogarty, K’nex UK’s managing director, added: “Our 3D building system means we are uniquely placed to bring the excitement of construction play and coasters into the classroom. We’re thrilled that the K’nex Science Workshop at Thorpe Park Resort will offer pupils a fun and engaging STEM learning experience as well as a chance to enjoy some of the best theme park rides in the country. Who knows, we may even inspire a future rollercoaster designer.”
The K’nex Science Workshop at Thorpe Park Resort is suitable for key stage 2 and 3 classes and can be booked at www.thorpepark.co.uk/schools. For more information about K’nex Education’s range of STEM learning kits, visit www.knexeducation.co.uk
