Robotics for grades 3 to 5.
- A foundation in STEM concepts
Fischertechnik Introduction to STEM II is a more in-depth introduction to technology and robotics. This set uses everyday technology to invite students to construct 12 easy-to-understand models. Students are offered a foundation in STEM concepts by applying them to classroom and household items they use daily. This includes constructing a hand dryer, windshield wipers, a lighthouse with blinking light, merry-go-round, and an automatic sliding door. Engage students with hands-on activities that will help them develop an interest and aptitude in STEM subjects. This education set is recommended for grades 3–5, and includes standards-based curriculum.
