This summer, fischertechnik has added two all new, and very affordable, sets to their science and technology focused Profi line. Today we will look at the first of those products, which is the new fischertechnik Solar Power set (#533875). The set is designed for use by students age 8 and above, and contains 160 pieces for building four working solar power models. These models include two that are variations on those included in the larger scale Oeco Energy set (#520400), and two that are unique to this set. They are the solar powered vehicle, ventilating fan, solar catamaran and the solar powered paddle wheel boat.

One of the new features introduced with this set is access to the new fischertechnik eLearning Portal, with instructional materials and videos available online. This portal provides additional background information on solar power, including experiments that can be performed with the models, photos, and animations. You can preview the eLearning Portal by visiting www.fischertechnik-elearning.com, but please note that you will need the special access code included inside the set to view all the materials.
The complete set, along with access to related materials on the new fischertechnik eLearning Portal, is available now for a list price of only $70* USD (Purchasing Info) in the United States. If you’re looking for an engaging and affordable way to introduce students to the fascinating field of solar energy, this is the ideal product for you.
*Pricing is subject to change, so please confirm price prior to purchase.
