Typically counted as 1/2 credit (elective-STEM/Robotics) for high school students.
Discover the world of electronics through real-life applications. Fischertechnik E-Tronic will have your teens building simple circuits, series and parallel circuits, and electronic switches with transistors, capacitors, resistors, and LEDs.
Fischertechnik E-Tronic teaches basic principles of electronics through a step-by-step process. Fischertechnik E-Tronic will teach your teen how to construct various exciting models, beginning with the simple and continuing to the complex, from creating a working garage door to a marble run with exciting electronic components.
The electronics module, a controller with 16 set programs, has two motor outputs, three analog inputs for sensors, and a potentiometer for controlling the speed of a motor. Fischertechnik E-Tronic will show your student how to install and control these components in different circuits and devices based on several models and practical examples.
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 and debug their designs. They even train personnel who would operate the new equipment with these models. Because such tasks demanded precision, the Fischertechnik parts were fabricated with quality and realism.
One Christmas (in 1964), Fischertechnik pulled together an assortment of its components and 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.
All Fischertechnik construction kits are compatible. Comprehensive, easy-to-understand assembly instructions are included in every construction set.

Review by Oaxacaborn:
”With this set, kids can build sixteen different projects, ranging from a simple electric circuits to an automated elevator. Of course, since this is a construction kit, the possibilities for building are unlimited. Best of all, the knowledge and electrical skills learned here directly transfer to real life! It really does meet the criteria for a practical robotics elective.”
