Build and control K’NEX models using the K’NEX Computer Control Set, while learning and applying STEM concepts

The K’NEX Interface acts as a traditional control interface when connected to a computer. Once a control program has been tested, it can be downloaded into the interface’s memory and used to operate a student built K’NEX model independent of the computer.

K’NEX Interface can control up to 2 motors, 6 output devices (buzzers, bulbs, LEDs) and 4 input devices (push button switches and reed switches) simultaneously.

The models in this STEM building set are fully functioning replicas of real-world machines, including a Sliding Door, Elevator, Bascule Bridge, Oscillating Fan and an Amusement Park Ride.
