Engineering Pathways Mobile STEM Lab
STEM concepts are all around us
Why do we roll a heavy load up a ramp instead of climbing stairs? How does a fragile looking construction crane lift heavy loads to build a skyscraper? How can we lift a car with a tiny screw jack to change a tire? The STEM lessons and design projects in Engineering Pathways give students deep insight into how the man-made world works.
Two types of robots
How do you get kids excited about robotics and computer science? Start with a remote. The Engineering Pathways Lab contains an easy-to-use remote-controlled robot that makes it fun to study motorized mechanisms and machines. The programmable ROKduino introduces students to coding, sensors, and autonomous robotic design.
Rapid prototyping and 3D printing
Students are fascinated by the ability of a 3D printer to rapidly manufacture prototype parts, but it can be tough for teachers to find meaningful CAD/rapid prototyping projects that also fit busy class schedules. With Kid Spark, students are able to complete projects quickly and get a feel for how real product engineering is done. Includes access to an online 3D library.
Students may not recognize it immediately but our modern world is full of highly integrated systems. For example, a smartphone isn't a single object; it’s an integrated system of cameras, radio systems, a computer and display, and hundreds of components. The Engineering Pathways STEM Lab is more than a simple STEM kit—it gives students perspective on how multiple technologies are used together to achieve the desired result.
