The Polydron Engineer Set is a groundbreaking Design and Technology product that allows students to explore engineering principles and the workings of simple machines. With 110 pieces that include various components, this set provides an excellent hands-on learning experience.
The set comes with workcards that provide step-by-step instructions for building five different models: Cable Car, Gear Toy 1, Gear Toy 2, Chairspinner, and Chairoplane. These models are not only fun to build but also demonstrate important engineering concepts.
One of the standout features of this set is the inclusion of cams and linkages, which are the latest innovations in engineering.
These components allow students to create recognizable models of engines, fairground rides, and other mechanical creations. Additionally, with gears that have simple ratios (8, 16, and 24 teeth), students have the opportunity to invent their own models using these versatile pieces.
The set also incorporates clear links between math and engineering, making it an invaluable resource for any design and technology class. With the comprehensive work cards included, users will be guided quickly and efficiently through the building process.
Notably, the Polydron Engineer Set is completely interactive with Polydron Original and Frameworks pieces. This means that it can seamlessly integrate with existing classroom stocks, making it a must-have addition to any design and technology class.
Rest assured, the Polydron Engineer Set has been fully tested by schools and experts, ensuring its quality and usability. Encourage your students to explore engineering principles and foster their creativity with this innovative and unique set.
