fischertechnik STEM Fundamentals kits are optimized for practice-oriented work from the middle and high school level upwards. Each set is designed to address a specific, technical topic from the STEM field. Each kit contains an assortment of parts with which various models can be built and experiments conducted. The models are optimized for functionality and thus avoid long construction times. Ideally, two to four students can work with a kit at the same time.
Each set comes with access to downloadable instructional materials, including lesson plans and task sheets with educational plan reference. fischertechnik STEM Fundamentals kits are ideal for teaching STEM related concepts in both the classroom or homeschool environment.
Fundamentals of Hydraulics
School and university students learn about hydraulic content with this realistic educational construction kit. This new set offers hands-on technology for learning about the transfer of force using liquids. Five different models illustrate how signals and forces can be transferred with liquid media. Students can build a simple functional demonstration model, an excavator, and three other models. Combined with the accompanying educational materials, the set helps to provide a solid overview on the topic of hydraulics. The downloadable teaching and activity materials are provided free of charge on the eLearning Portal to support teachers in preparing for and designing their curricula.
Includes instructional activity information (free download)
Components include 4 control cylinders, and 4 working cylinders
Contains 475 parts for building 5 different models.
Fundamentals of Engineering and Construction: The ideal technology construction set for all future mechanical engineers. The areas of dynamics, statics, gears, structure, and bracing are all addressed as students learn by building models that illustrate the principles behind these concepts. This set will help students to answer questions such as:
Requires 9V battery (not included).

fischertechnik Education Pneumatics: Beginner construction set takes a learning- by-playing approach to the principles of pneumatics, with realistic models to show how pneumatic valves and cylinders work. The air is pumped manually into an air chamber. Pressing the hand valves conveys the compressed air through the hoses into the pneumatic cylinder. An excavator and four other models can be constructed. The instructional activity information for students is available online at the fischertechnik eLearning portal.
Learn and understand the principles of Solar Power with the fischertechnik Education Solar: Beginner kit. Renewable energy sources will play an increasingly significant role in future. A solar module generates electricity from the energy of the sun to move the solar boats and the solar car. Whether on water or land, the construction set is a learning-by-playing approach to solar power. The solar module and solar motor can be used to make a solar vehicle, a ventilating fan and two floating ship models ("Solar Catamaran" and "Paddle Steamer"). The instructional activity information about solar is available online (fischertechnik-eLearning.com).
The Simple Machines Set offers topics relevant to STEM subject area curricula such as physics, technology, and the natural sciences, and helps students gain a basic knowledge of mechanical and technical principles. 40 different models are used to cover topics like pulleys and hoists, gears, steering, statics, and much more. Simple Machines can be used in supervised and unsupervised learning, and is already a popular and classic choice in many schools.
Explore the basic principles behind electronics.
Explore fundamentals of gear technology with 26 different models for hands-on experimentation. Learn about lever principles, ratios, four-link systems, pulleys, differential gears, planetary gears, and much more.
The first experiments with pneumatics were conducted in the third century B.C., which led to the discovery of the extreme versatility and usefulness of compressed air. Using 8 models and 29 experiments, STEM Pneumatics teaches the basic principles of pneumatics, and demonstrates the functioning of components like compressors, pneumatic valves and cylinders, as well as an exhaust throttle valve. The concept also includes a full set of lesson plans for teachers.
How can you generate electricity in an environmentally friendly way? How does a fuel cell work, and how can it be used to generate hydrogen? Renewable energies are the most important energy sources of the future. The generation, storage and use of electricity from the natural energy sources of water, wind and sun are clearly explained using nine models and 28 experiments.
