There is a whole range of physical laws inside this construction kit. STEM Simple Machines covers the topics on which the various tools and machines are based (rope and bar, lever, pulley, and inclined plane). But we don’t just get to explore complex mechanical functions like those of a differential gear – we also examine exciting models from our pupils' everyday lives in great detail and give them those eureka moments! The mechanics of a screw clamp and a pulley is just one example of the mechanical functions that we explore. We will be able to measure and check the results of the practical experiments with the help of the spring balance included in the kit.
Each set contains 16 identical trays of 149 parts for building 10 instructional models. 2384 parts in all.
Accompanying teaching material:
fischertechnik Education products include comprehensive, freely accessible teaching materials. These have been developed together with teacher training colleges, teachers and didacticians and are ideally suited to the needs of the classroom. In addition to the topic introduction, lesson plans with task sheets and educational plan references are available.
- The topic introduction provides content that can be optimally used for lesson preparation and integrated into the lessons. Definitions, history, basic knowledge and much more are provided.
- The teaching material includes an overview of the learning objectives as well as the time required for the tasks.
- In line with the curriculum-relevant topics, various tasks are included within which different experiments are dealt with.
- The tasks are divided into a construction task, thematic task and experimentation task. In this way, one progresses from building, to learning technical content, to applying the acquired knowledge.
