Product Description

This beginner educational construction set can be used to introduce and familiarize students with the topic of pneumatics. True-to life models are used to visualize how pneumatic valves and cylinders work, helping them understand their function. Air is pumped into an air cell manually. Activating the hand valve sends the compressed air through the hoses and into the pneumatic cylinder. The 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 technical principles. Pneumatics Beginner can be used in supervised and unsupervised learning.

Additional Teaching Material:

Innovative fischertechnik learning materials support you in teaching technical concepts in a practical way and introducing them to your secondary school and college students or your apprentices.The included didactic activity booklet with teacher and instructional materials offers display models and tasks to help you quickly prepare lessons, and includes problems with solutions, handouts, and copy templates.Teaching materials are available for free download from the eLearning portal:
