Lux Blox allow students to learn more about the world by imitating design and construction principles that persist throughout nature. This unique building manipulative emulates kinematics—the language of linkages where all bonds have the potential to move. Pieces feature a patented hinge that connects through linking, allowing for creations that can be fluid or rigid.
This open-ended system allows builders to ask questions and solve real-world problems faced by today's structural engineers, like balancing structural integrity with aesthetics. And the more they build, the more they learn from past failures! Lux Blox also serve as an excellent math manipulative, encouraging discovery of counting, sorting, surface area, and geometric solids.
Kit supplies up to 20 elementary students with everything they need to explore membranes, linkages, simple machines, and more! Kit includes over 1,300 ABS plastic pieces, a full-color 36-page teacher's primer, laminated starter guide, and a durable plastic storage unit to hold it all. Full contents list below.
