Do you ever wonder how bridges span huge distances and how skyscrapers stay standing? Structural engineers use physics and their knowledge of the properties of building materials and geometric shapes to design structures with sufficient strength and stability.

With this kit of modular building pieces, you can learn the basics of structural engineering by conducting a series of 20 model-building experiments. Each model demonstrates a basic principle of mechanical physics or structural engineering in a hands-on way.

Start out with small models that demonstrate how structural elements can be attached together to maximize the strength of a structure for a fixed amount of material used. Learn about basic structural elements including columns, beams, trusses, plates, arches, shells, and catenary. Explore the forces acting on structural components including tension, compression, shear, and bending.

Move onto building more complex models of trusses, roofs, and small buildings. Experiment with different types of bridge construction: a truss bridge, arch bridge, cantilever bridge, rope bridge, and suspension bridge. Finally, build models of towering skyscrapers. What is the tallest tower you can build using only the pieces included in the kit?

Learn about the strength and stiffness of materials. See how structural engineers optimize factors to maximize safety, and minimize cost and the risk of structural failure.

A 36-page, full-color manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions.

  • Main topics extraction, storage and use of electric power / energy sources such as water, wind, sun and hydrogen
  • Includes downloadable teaching and activity material (free download)
  • Components include a solar motor (2VDC), 2 solar modules (1VDC, 400mA), a goldcap energy storage device, an LED, a fuel cell, a voltage converter, and a multimeter

How is environmentally friendly power generated? How does a fuel cell work, and how can you use it to produce hydrogen? Renewable energy sources will become the most important sources of energy in the future. Nine models and 28 experiments are used to demonstrate the production, storage and use of electricity from natural sources like water, wind and solar power. Powerful solar models can be attached in different ways for versatile use in the models. The included Gold Cap serves as an energy storage system, which can also output stored energy. The fuel cell clearly demonstrates how water is split into the two components hydrogen and oxygen. This teaches children about future energy sources and helps them learn important skills. A full set of lesson plans helps teachers use the STEM Renewable Energies set in the classroom.

Students will be able to build 9 functional models, to learn all about how energy from wind, water, sun, and fuel cell technology is generated, stored, and used.

This construction set teaches the basics of hydraulics through play. The fischertechnik hydraulic system is operated with water, demonstrating how force can be transmitted via liquid media. Here’s how the system works: A manually operated control cylinder presses the water into the working cylinder through hoses. The working cylinder extends, moving the digger arm or the shovel on the powerful crawler excavator. This allows builders to control three different excavator movements hydraulically. Five different models can be built with the PROFI Hydraulic construction kit, meaning this new kit offers extensive building and playing fun. Combined with additional pedagogical materials on the eLearning Portal, this construction kit truly lets students “Learn about technology through play”.
