Function and Applications
This beginner educational construction set can be used to introduce and familiarize students with the topic of pneumatics. True-to life models are used to visualize how pneumatic valves and cylinders work, helping them understand their function. Air is pumped into an air cell manually. Activating the hand valve sends the compressed air through the hoses and into the pneumatic cylinder. The set offers topics relevant to STEM subject area curricula such as physics, technology, and the natural sciences, and helps students gain a basic knowledge of technical principles. This set is made for younger students to teach the principles of pneumatics, with realistic models to show how pneumatic valves and cylinders work.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Understand pneumatics
- Manually generate compressed air
- Understand the functions of valves, cylinders, air cells, check valves, and much more
- Use hand valves to move machines (models)
