K'NEX Sparks Creativity for Young Engineers with New Mighty Makers Sets! #IAmAMightyMaker +Giveaway

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Woohoo!  K’NEX has launched a new line of STEM sets geared toward girls.  These STEM-inspired sets were designed by women to empower young girls and invites them to express their natural creativity with fun, colorful structures and characters. Mighty Makers sets aim to show every girl that she can be MIGHTY!


About Mighty Makers:
Estimates show the U.S. will have over 1.2 million unfilled jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math by 2018.The need for educated and excited workers is growing! 
Without the needed coursework and training, many of the openings in STEM careers will go unfilled. This crisis pits job openings against a population that is not qualified to fill them.
Children educated in STEM-related disciplines will ultimately have lower unemployment rates and higher starting salaries than the population at large.

K'NEX has noticed a lack of women pursuing careers in STEM and we want to help change that! Young girls have a natural inclination towards building and designing, but there are very few options for them in the building toy aisle.  Building, constructing, and creating, gives children the foundation they need to become lifelong learners who can solve problems, think critically, work collaboratively and adapt to change in today’s technologically evolving world. 

We were lucky enough to receive the Fun on the Ferris Wheel Building Set


This fun kit includes everything you need to build three different mechanical engineering themed builds.  Both A and D loved building these fun carnival-themed projects.  As with all K'NEX sets, the included instruction booklet was easy enough for my engineering-minded 6 and 9 year old kiddos.  They can't wait to try some of the other Mighty Makers sets!
