K’NEX Creativity: Super Wheels at The Trove

Following the successful K’NEX Special – The New NY Bridge and I Lift NY Super Crane Project at White Plains Public Library, a 6th Grade Special: Connect with K’NEX program last week invited students to The Trove to pool their creativity by designing and building their own K’NEX models.

“It’s a fun way to learn teamwork and use their imagination to with the K’NEX,” children’s librarian Terry Rabideau said. “They learn how the various shapes and sizes fit together, they’re looking at colors. It’s a chance to be creative.”

The result: a colorful vehicle that would’ve stood up to the recent snowstorm.

Check out K’NEX replicas of the New NY Bridge and the I Lift NY super crane at The Trove — and the super crane via the viewing area in Tarrytown.

I’d like to know what you think.
