Fischertechnik Profi Mechanic & Static 2
Not all children aspire to a career as mechanical engineers. But every preteen should have a basic idea of how a manual transmission works, what a planetary gear is, and what design makes a bridge sturdy. While reading about mechanics may be less time-consuming, your student will remember more when he builds what he is studying. The 500-piece Fischertechnik Mechanic + Static 2 kit introduces your child to the fundamentals of mechanics and structural design.
Using a progression of 30 helpful models - like a windshield wiper, elevating platform, crane, and bridges - to better understand pulleys, leverage, torque, and other such concepts, Mechanic + Static 2 brings book knowledge to life. Fischertechnik Mechanic + Static 2 comes with a wordless manual for building the 30 models. You can download an additional manual that further explains the concepts in PDF format here

For years Fischertechnik manufactured world-renowned components intended for engineering companies who built prototypes of factory installations. Those tabletop factory replicas realistically and cost-effectively allowed the engineers to plan, program, develop, and test industrial controls; debug designs; and even train personnel who would operate the new equipment. Because such tasks demanded precision, the Fischertechnik parts were fabricated with quality and realism in mind. Then at Christmas in 1964, using an assortment of the same components, Fischertechnik presented child-friendly modeling kits to engineers and industrial clients. The gifts were so popular that in 1965, Fischertechnik introduced its first building set in Germany.
Over the years, institutions that promote pre-engineering courses for middle and high-school students have used Fischertechnik components in 1,300 schools across the states. Equally valuable in a homeschool curriculum, Fischertechnik allows children to learn technology using the most realistic parts currently available. Highly regarded by engineers, the ready-to-assemble, compact training models mimic real-life applications and are suitable for education, training, and industry. Engineered to scientific precision and manufactured using high-strength nylon, plastic, and steel, the unique design of these components results in the most durable and reliable connections.
The versatile Fischertechnik basic building block is the basis for all Fischertechnik construction sets. This block's channel-and-groove design allows your engineer to add parts and build on all six sides. And all Fischertechnik construction kits are compatible. Comprehensive, easy-to-understand assembly instructions are included in every construction set. Fischertechnik kits teach basic technical knowledge and promote spatial thinking abilities, logical thinking skills, imagination, and creativity.
