K’NEX Education has secured a year-long partnership to introduce a new science workshop at the popular theme park resort, Thorpe Park.

The new workshop will launch during National Science Week taking place this March, allowing kids to explore STEM principles through its it line of K’NEX Education kits.

The initiative will adhere to key stage two and three learning and will give youngsters the chance to explore the science behind some of the park’s popular rollercoaster rides.

“K’NEX Education kits are an ideal way for pupils to investigate the science behind our thrilling rides through problem-solving, discovery and critical thinking,” said Jack Du Pille, Thorpe Park Resort educational manager.

After the 3D learning workshop, pupils will explore the theme park to experience the science of rollercoasters in real life.”

Paul Fogarty, K’NEX UK MD, added: “Our 3D building system means we are uniquely placed to bring the excitement of construction play and coasters into the classroom.

"We’re thrilled that the K’NEX Science Workshop at Thorpe Park Resort will offer pupils a fun and engaging STEM learning experience as well as a chance to enjoy some of the best theme park rides in the country. Who knows, we may even inspire a future rollercoaster designer.”
