Introduction: How to Make K'NEX Overcomer
This is a great quick build that uses very few pieces. The K'NEX Overcomer can "overcome" almost any obstacle (hence the name) that it meets. This amazing little guy will be sure to mesmerize you as he crawls over obstacles you never would have dreamed could be climbed by such a small vehicle.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Pieces
Just do what it says. Gather the pieces above. Or, if you are like me, just find the pieces as you go. Your call. Make sure the motor you get is the black or green kind that is low-speed high-torque. Then proceed to the next step
Step 2: Construction
Ok, If you followed the instruction correctly then you should be done! Great Job! Go to the next step to learn how to use it.
Step 3: Using the Overcomer
The Overcomer can climb over many obstacles, but I would recommend a glasses case, a duct tape roll, and sunglasses as some of the coolest. Remember when turning it on that you should slide the switch towards the arrow that points the OPPOSITE way you want it to go. And finally make sure you don't get something stuck between and arm and the motor. Have fun and enjoy your new toy! Please heart and comment! Thanks!
