Science With K'Nex® Home Page
These Investigations Use K'Nex ® DownHill Thrill set to investigate motion and variables of speed, slope, mass, and friction with a race car and down hill track. K'Nex ® plans include how to build a race car and DownHill Thrill course with a jump or the Devil's Drop course a down hill track with four drops.
