fischertechnik Education STEM PREP
- Grades: 6+
- Number of Students: 1-2
The fischertechnik Education STEM PREP set focuses on physics, robotics, energy and power. It encourages students to explore key aspects of technology through activities that include cross-curricular material.
Contains detailed curriculum in PDF format for both students and teachers. Curriculum project themes include:
- Sketching and Documentation
- Simple Machines
- Mechanical Systems
- Conversion and Storage of Energy
- Digital Communication
- Programming Control Systems
The STEM PREP curriculum, included in each set, is designed to help students understand the relationship of the subjects they study. Tasks are supported with documentation that invite students to record their sketches, notes, research reports, data analysis and any significant findings in the construction of their final models. In doing so, each topic is also connected to subjects outside of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) - such as language arts, history, drawing and more.
This project-based learning set supports a meaningful exploration of STEM concepts. It allows groups of students to develop their own solutions with the guidance of carefully thought out instructions. Answer those questions, "Why do I need to know this?" and "Where will I ever use this?" with a comprehensive STEM program built for the classroom and infused with real world applications.
In addition to the curriculum, each STEM PREP set contains a total of 2110 parts and components—including ROBO Pro LT software (for PC), USB powered control unit, electronics module, pullback motor, solar motor, XS motor, Mini motor, compressor, 2 solar modules, Goldcap energy storage, NTC resistor, phototransistor, an LED, 2 rainbow LEDs—all packed in a convenient and sturdy plastic Gratnells storage box.
