Writing design briefs for students to follow can be challenging. This guide provides a basic template for design briefs and teacher tips for modifying an activity into the design brief format.
Potential energy is a surprising thing. Sometimes, an object as simple as a tape measure can have an unexpected amount of power. With the Toolbox Racer Maker Project, students can tap into the potential energy of tape measures to create a simple race car. The project includes the Toolbox Racer Pack, Toolbox Racer Start Gate, glue, tape measures, duct tape, kite string, and a Toolbox Racer video. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
Toothpicks can be used for more than just cleaning teeth. With the Toothpick Bridges Maker Project, students can build bridges out of toothpicks and test them to see how much weight their bridges can hold. The project includes enough materials for a whole class to build bridges such as toothpicks, Structures Glue, empty glue bottles, waxed paper, a Toothpick Bridge Tester, and a Dr. Zoon Toothpick Bridges Video. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
This heavy-duty tubing cutter is for cutting the 5/8" diameter structural tubing for TETRIX® robots. The all-metal construction of this cutter makes it easy to cut tubing lengths precisely and with ease. The cutting diameter range is 1/8" to 7/8".
Offers a replacement for a lost or damaged Ultrasonic Sensor Mount.
Water rockets take fun and learning outdoors and to the sky. With the Water Rockets Maker Project, students learn important scientific principles such as Newton’s laws, acceleration, thrust, and inertia while blasting water-filled rockets into the sky. The project includes materials for constructing water rockets: body tubes, transition cones, fin materials, nose cones, sandpaper, an AquaPort II Water Rocket Launcher, and a Deluxe Port Pump II. Students need to provide their own plastic bottle (20 ounce, 1 liter, or 2 liter). For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
Hot-air balloons are mesmerizing to watch as they float up into the sky. With the Zoon Balloon Maker Project, students can create their own hot-air balloons and learn about buoyancy, temperature, density, and more. The project includes glue sticks, hot-air balloon templates, assorted color tissue paper, paper clips, a Hot-Air Balloon video, an Indoor Balloon Tester, and an Inflation Station. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization. Propane is required for outdoor launches and is sold separately.
This screwdriver is an ideal tool for mounting TETRIX® MAX and PRIME servo motors to mounts and for assembling the PRIME Gripper Kit. Features an end with a No. 1 Phillips drive and an end with a 1/8" flat head.
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.
It’s time to test your structures with the EZ Shake Table! Students build structures, place them on the table, and use a crank to do the shaking themselves. It’s a fun way to learn physical science, Earth science, building geometry, and many other concepts while also having fun shaking the structures.
Supply your classroom with car kits to use with your 3-D printer. This package provides all the parts needed to create 50 battery-operated cars; however, some parts can be made with the 3-D printer if desired. Includes wheels, axles, chassis, battery holders, batteries, motors, and other necessary components and hardware. Engineering Notebooks sold separately.
Afinia Premium ABS Filament is designed to the extruding specification of the H-Series 3-D printer. The supports and raft break easily away from your model, leaving a fine finish while keeping high-dimensional tolerances. This filament works with the H-Series and other legacy Afinia printers. Includes two 500 g rolls.
