The first experiments with pneumatics were conducted in the third century B.C., which led to the discovery of the extreme versatility and usefulness of compressed air. Using 8 models and 29 experiments, STEM Pneumatics teaches the basic principles of pneumatics, and demonstrates the functioning of components like compressors, pneumatic valves and cylinders, as well as an exhaust throttle valve. The concept also includes a full set of lesson plans for teachers.
Students will be able to build 8 instructional models, fully equipped with compressor, valves, exhaust air throttle valves, cylinders, battery pack, and pressure gauge/manometer. Models include a two function model, barrier with single-acting cylinder, barrier with double-acting cylinder, vacuum gripper, compressed air motor, scissor lift table, and a movable vacuum suction pad.
Includes access to tutorial materials with 29 different experiments.
Materials come packed in sturdy plastic Gratnells storage box with transparent lid.
Total 273 components.
Middle School/High School level.
