Other MMERC STEM Kits
- KEVA Planks Set – Students build structures by stacking planks. KEVA planks are about 1/4 inch thick, 3/4 inch wide and 4 1/2 inches long. There are no connectors. They can be stacked upright and are surprisingly stable. Building with these blocks helps children do better in math and science. Physically handling the blocks builds a fundamental understanding of quantities, equality, geometry, etc. Building also promotes creativity and teamwork. Includes educator’s manual.
