fischertechnik — the building blocks to an engaging STEM education program

These days it seems everywhere you turn, leading educators are stressing the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education, and the reason for this is simple. Demand for scientists and engineers is expected to grow at a rate far exceeding any other occupational field. At the same time fewer and fewer students are pursuing careers in these areas. When they are, they are often not performing at a sufficient level of academic achievement to be successful. While most schools do address the areas of Science and Math to varying degrees, the two aspects of the STEM education equation that are most often overlooked are the “T” and the “E”–technology and engineering. To help close this gap, you need materials that allow you to provide an engaging, hands-on introduction to technology and essential STEM related concepts. You need fischertechnik. more...
