The Hydraulics STEM Maker Class Set is great for outreach groups and classrooms where the class size is in the 15 to 30 student range.

Intuitive and challenging, children from ages 6 and over can explore and create machines with real hands-on experiences engaging their curiosity and creative problem solving.

Whether they make a machine that replicates or solves a real world problem, or one that makes a funny face, students learn to think differently when they can easily explore connecting and making a machine move. With a simple challenge, the students can imagine a solution, experiment, and problem solve and build a machine that solves the problem – or they can just tinker!

Best of all, the pieces are intuitive, there is a very fast learning curve for the kids, so time can be spent testing ideas, tinkering, and making. Instructional staff do not need extensive training as the parts are easy to understand and work with, and the materials can make simple machines or highly complex Rube Goldberg style machines, it all depends on the challenges – and the imagination of the student! We have recently added a cool gripper mechanism for both the Sets, so it is even more versatile! 

Included in the the maker set are 35 bases and you have enough material for 30 to 50 students to make a huge variety of machines from simple lifting machines to very complex robotic arms, allowing you to use the set over a wide range of ages, from 6 to 60.

This Set will make your STEM programs rock!

The STEM Hydraulics Maker Class Set is designed for reusability, making it an excellent investment for educational institutions, homeschoolers, and after-school programs
