Building an EZ Trebuchet is a great activity for elementary students to complete. This elementary guide is written for Grades 3-5. With these fun activities, students grasp a variety of subjects including forces, energy, variables, and tons more.
The EZ Trebuchet Elementary STEM Activity Guide contains the NGSS and CCSSM addressed; teacher and student instructions for math, science, and engineering activities; assessment questions; and student pages. This guide contains two guided inquiry lessons and a culminating engineering challenge for students to apply concepts learned through the inquiry lessons.
Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the EZ Trebuchet Kits, computers, scissors, string, tape measures, targets, and standard classroom tools and materials.
Makes STEM education fun! Makey Makey enables you to make a controller out of almost anything. Start out easy with a banana piano. First setup takes seconds. Then, make game controllers, musical instruments, and inventions. Advance to female headers and multi-key remapping up to 18 keys. Ages 8 to infinity.
Makey Makey board, USB cable, seven alligator clips, six connector wires, instructions with Visual Project Start Guide, online documentation, and 20 color stickers.
Get the best of both worlds and take hands-on STEM learning to the next level with the TETRIX® MAX Dual-Control Robotics Set. Complete with the PRIZM™ Robotics Controller and wireless gamepad and receiver, this set comes with everything needed to create programmable or remote-controlled robots. Designed to provide one student or a team of up to four students with the hardware necessary to engineer, test, drive, or code robots, this set is complete with a builder’s guide and a programming guide that introduces the basics of building and coding through a series of hands-on projects.
Add this expansion set to your TETRIX® collection to build bigger and more complex robots and complete more challenging engineering projects. This set includes 637 building elements and comes complete with a convenient storage bin.
The TETRIX® MAX Programmable Robotics Set contains the PRIZM™ Robotics Controller and the building elements needed for students to engineer, code, and test solutions using real-world robotics technology. Designed to provide one student or a team of up to four students with the hardware to create autonomous robots, this set is complete with two sensors and a programming guide that introduces the basics of coding through a series of hands-on projects.
Featuring heavy-duty, aircraft-grade aluminum elements for construction, powerful drive motors, and expandable capabilities, TETRIX® provides the ideal platform for creativity. Designed to provide one student or a team of up to four students with the hardware to design remote-controlled robots, this set ensures you won't miss any parts needed to finish your classroom projects.
*Please note the color of the wireless controller might vary.
The wind is all around us blowing us here or there as it sees fit. In order to give students a better understanding of measuring wind velocity, try out Pitsco’s Anemometer. Students create their own anemometer, use instruments to calibrate it, and then use a personalized anemometer for wind-related experiments.
Based on contemporary building techniques, these kits consist of a series of interconnecting modular components that permit you to design, build, and modify multiple structures.
ARCKIT 60 is ideal for creating smaller structures, student projects, interior designs, and home extensions and for learning the basics. This is also a great gift for budding architects.
ARCKIT 120 is perfect for light professional use and versatile enough to create a range of structures.
ARCKIT 240 is the pro’s choice: large enough to create a diverse range of structures of varying sizes with enough components to really explore designs and ideas.
For a better understanding of hydraulics and construction machines, look no further than Pitsco’s Backhoe. The backhoe uses hydraulic syringes to move the axes. Four controls are constructed from the syringes to imitate the basic controls of a real-life backhoe. A single student can operate all the controls, or a group of four can operate the controls as a team. With the shovel on the end of the backhoe, students can get a feel for how large construction machines work!
One kit. Hundreds of gifts. The Gizmos & Gadgets Kit is the ultimate app-enabled invention toolbox. It transforms passive screen time into a passion for hands-on inventing, problem solving, and creativity. Create app-enabled games, pranks, and crazy contraptions.
Create tomorrow’s innovators and idea makers with littleBits electronic building blocks. These easy-to-use Bits make creative discovery and invention a snap for next-generation thinkers, designers, and tinkerers of all ages and genders. No programming, soldering, or wiring required.
Evolve the way kids think by developing design and critical-thinking skills through the littleBits cycle of invention (create > play > remix > share). Whether they build from instructions or their imagination, start creating something, use it, improve it, and experiment. Then, inspire others by showing the world what they’ve created.
This kit comes with 13 Bits and 54 accessories that allow students to make 16 different inventions such as the Bitbot, Bubblebot, and Spinmate. Best of all, the Bits are reusable, so students can recycle Bits in unlimited ways to create new, imaginative inventions!
