Kids can design, invent and build an endless variety of structures with Brackitz Education Structures set and Gears, Sprockets & Chains Module. From skyscrapers to submarines, dinosaurs to storybook characters using the kit’s multi-use planks, rotating pieces, and connecting hubs. Gears and chains (like the ones in bicycles) are simple machines. When students learn to design and build with gears they gain a hands-on understanding of the principles of motion. Free PreK-6 lessons are available for Structures & Gears. Each activity is focused on solving real-world challenges using creativity and problem-based learning approach. A sturdy but lightweight bin keeps the pieces organized with Brackitz Gears & Structures Set. Find activities and resources in the Lesson Plans & Resources section.

Does this set work with Keva planks like Brackitz connectors do?
Thank you for your question. We can't guarantee the fit with other manufacturers. If Keva planks are used, some may be too loose, too tight or just right.
How many pulleys come with it?
This set contains 4 pulleys. Thanks for asking.
Do you need to have one of the basic sets to use this one effectively or is it stand-alone?
Each Brackitz set is a stand-alone AND works with all other sets! Happy Building!!
