K’nex inspires children at the Big Bang Fair

Published on: 17th March 2015

K’nex visited the Big Bang Fair last week to offer interactive construction play experiences to children throughout the show in conjunction with The Bloodhound Project.  

K'nex-wordpressAlongside preparation for an upcoming world land speed record attempt, the Bloodhound team inspires future generations to take up Stem careers, using K’nex to give school children their first introduction to engineering concepts.

Young visitors to the Big Bang Fair at Birmingham NEC were challenged to build their own race cars using K’nex and then display them on a giant screen. Winners were picked each day to take home prizes including K’nex 35 Model Tubs and K’nex Four Wheel Drive Trucks. Winning designs will be showcased on the K’nex UK website and regional press outreach will announce winners to their local press.

All children who took part in a K’nex activity during the show were given a sample pack to continue the building fun at home.
