Explore and understand the fundamentals of hydraulics through play. The fischertechnik hydraulic system is operated with water, demonstrating how force can be transmitted via liquid media. Here’s how the system works: A manually operated control cylinder presses the water into the working cylinder through hoses. The working cylinder extends, moving the digger arm or the shovel on the powerful crawler excavator. This allows builders to control three different excavator movements hydraulically. Five different models can be built with the PROFI Hydraulic construction kit, meaning this new kit offers extensive building and playing fun. Combined with additional instructional materials--available for free download on the fischertechnik eLearning Portal--this construction kit truly enables students to “learn about technology through play”.
