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. Includes the rare Fischertechnik action figure.
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.

We really enjoyed this set but sometimes the pieces were really hard to place and our daughters poor fingers were red and sore after building. Other than that she really enjoyed when she was able to create the project. My favorite was the balance.
So many options for designs and creativity. Our 7th grader and 5th grader love to build, break down and create. This a really good team building kit. For my boys whose interest include design, engineering and architecture this was perfect!
My daughter loves this
The directions some times are not the easiest to understand but all in all it’s great to see him do them on his own. He loves building and wants to get more sets.
My son is 12 and has often used this. He says it’s very challenging, but enjoys it when he finishes a project. This will great for him for years to come!
