The second fischertechnik set for exploring physics offers more advanced models, more action, faster speeds and an even larger scale. Featuring all new special parts such as 90 degree curves, cross-overs and jumps with catch funnel. Once again, learning becomes fun as students observe as the balls race through tight curves and chutes and shoot through different tracks.
This second set also utlilizes more sophisticated conveying techniques. For example, now with the new mega model the balls are transported back up by a motor-driven conveying wheel. They are carried even higher by the innovative stage conveyor, which transports the balls one by one all the way to the top in a zig-zag pattern. Once there the balls shoot along their own path downward through the loop, quarterpipe and jumping loop. More ingenious models such as a launching pad, stair step conveyor and chain lift make the subject of conveying technology inspiring.
Set includes multi-language teaching and activity booklet, Mini motor, 2x rainbow LED, 31x track unit, 12x steel ball, 5x 90 degree curve, cross-over, catch funnel and battery tray for 9V block. 1250 parts in all for building 8 different models. Requires a regular 9V battery (not included), or if you prefer, all models can also be powered with either the fischertechnik Power Set or Accu Set (each sold separately). Comes packed in sturdy plastic Gratnell's storage box. Recommended: 1 set per 2 students.
