At fischertechnik, we understand the vital importance of introducing students to STEM concepts as early in their formal education as possible. The popular "Introduction to STEM" series allows educators to offer a standards-focused, curriculum based exploration of simple machines and entry level robotics to students in grade two and above. In addition, the brand new fischertechnik STEM class sets are optimized for regular lessons at the elementary level (age 7 and up), and are designed for group work with two or more students. Each sets focuses on a specific, technical topic. Each of these class sets consist of 2 blue storage BOX 1000 units, containing 16 identical individual parts sets. This provides enough materials so that 15 students (or groups) and one teacher can each be equipped with one set. Each individual set is stored in a clearly arranged tray with a printed sorting insert for uncomplicated back-sorting. These trays can be taken to individual work stations by the students to promote a smooth teaching process. Accompanied by teaching materials which include lesson plans and task sheets with educational plan references, the class sets are ideal for teaching technical content at the primary level.
How does the light in the stairwell come on? Why does it go on at the bottom and off at the top? These and many other questions about electrical circuits are taught in an engaging and kid-friendly way using our Class Set Electrical Control with nine models and 25 experiments. The models can be easily built in class and directly integrated with the ready-made tasks and solutions.
How does a bevel gear, a belt gear or a rack and pinion gear work? What happens when the transmission ratio changes? Young students age 7 and up can investigate these and many other questions using 15 models and twelve experiments. The models can be set up quickly and easily in the classroom and can be used optimally with the help of the ready-made tasks and solutions.
Explore optical phenomena, and experiment with light in class! Explore penumbra and umbra, discover many exciting things with a magnifying glass or determine the time with a sundial. These and many other exciting topics can be taught in an engaging and hands-on manner using the CLASS SET Optics. In addition to the six models, which can be built quickly and are therefore easy to teach, the kit offers six exciting experiments.
Renewable energies are becoming increasingly important to our future. The CLASS SET Solar Energy is the perfect method for introducing young students to this vitally important topic. With three quickly assembled models, the basics of solar energy can be taught in class using ten ready-made tasks, including solutions, with lots of fun and exciting insights.
fischertechnik Introduction to STEM II is a more in-depth introduction to technology and robotics. This set uses everyday technology and invites students to construct 12 easy-to-understand models. Students are offered a foundation in STEM concepts with a focus on computer science. Based on the easy-to-use ROBO Pro Light software, this set introduces programming activities and incorporates robotics as a catalyst for interactive learning. Through building a model, students will experience hands-on applications of programming and see how it translates to the physical world. Engage students with hands-on activities that will help them develop an interest and aptitude in computer science and other STEM subjects. This education set is recommended for grades 3-5, and includes standards-based curriculum.
