Comments about KEVA® Contraptions Plank Set:

Contraptions is an exceptional tool that offers my students an engaging way to develop their engineering practices. Even those that start with a deficit in the area, can easily follow the directions provided and create a functioning project. From there, I have observed my students applying their newly acquired skills and methods to build their own structures. Multiple state standards can be presented and assessed using this tool. My students have never enjoyed their assessments so much.
