fischertechnik Education STEM Engineering provides students with a comprehensive overview of robotics, coding, and automated systems. This set is based heavily on computer science and engineering with an emphasis on programming. With over 30 different activities, students are invited to use the ROBO Pro programming software to create their own programs and automate their models. Offer your students an in-depth look at how coding works, which will strengthen their computational logic and ability to employ creative thinking in analytical programming. Success in STEM and higher education starts with an understanding of computer science and how it applies to engineering topics. Give your students a step up with this engaging set!


Features of fischertechnik Education STEM Engineering

The STEM Engineering set contains a detailed, standards-focused curriculum in PDF format for both students and teachers. The curriculum is broken down into a series of units on the following topics:

 

  • Basics of Computer Science
  • Programming
  • Fundamentals of Automation and Robotics
  • Sketching and Documentation
  • Basic Electricity
  • Sensing and Vision Systems
  • Mobile Robotics Actuators

 


Select from over 30 different activities designed to help your students make real-world connections to important engineering principles. Similar to the STEM PREP set, STEM Engineering approaches each model with a project-based technique. Students are asked to document their construction process in various ways during the lesson. In doing so, they complete a cross-curricular examination of the topic that ties into subjects like language arts, drawing, science, math, and many more.

Take your STEM curriculum to a more interactive level by guiding students to reach their own conclusions in a project-based environment. Using the STEM Engineering set, educators and students are supported with a standards-based curriculum, while also experiencing the freedom to experiment with materials.
