fischertechnik Cars & Drives
fischertechnik Cars & Drives
Our Price: $84.00

fischertechnik Cars and Drives provides a glimpse into how different types of drive systems work. With this set, future engineers can build up to 8 different models. Learn the difference between a friction drive and a rubber-band drive. Discover how a balloon drive and a bending rod drive help propel your model. Or, explore the complexities of wind as it is harnessed to drive models forward. It's all in the Cars and Drives set!

For additional remote control functionality, combine the included off-road vehicle equipped with functioning steering and suspension with the Motor Set XM and Control Set.

The fischertechnik Cars and Drives set includes a instructional activity and a friction motor to help you build up to 8 different drive models. It is ideally combined with the Motor Set XM, Control Set, Sound + Lights and Accu Set for added capabilities.

This set helps user understand how different drive systems work with hands-on models. What better way to combine fun and learning than building your own buggy? Check out which drive systems you can assemble!

Wind Drive
This model demonstrates how wind can be used for propulsion. Build this sail buggy as described in your assembly instructions. Watch as the wind hits the surface of the sail and propels the sail buggy forward. Experiment with moving the position of the sail and see how your model reacts!

Balloon Drive
Discover how you can drive this model using air molecules. Using a balloon, you can watch as air is released and pushes the model forward - producing the same reactive force that launches rockets into outer space.

Bending Rod Drive
This model uses the same drive motion uses in ancient times with bow and arrows or stones. This mechanical energy relies on tension, which is provided by the bending rod. After construction of the model is complete, pull it backward to establish proper and tension and then release it to watch it move forward.

Rubber Band Motor
The Rubber Band Motor is similar to the previous model in that it also relies on tension. Instead of the rod establishing tension, the rubber band is used to establish a force to drive the model.

Pullback Motor (Trike & Buggy)
This model can be built in two different ways - though it still requires the use of the pullback motor. The pullback motor consists of a gear, wound-up springs, shafts and housing over top of it. The spring is permanently connected to the housing and to a shaft over the gear. It is tensioned in the same way as winding a clock. This drive works by transferring the stored energy in the spring to the gears and then on to the wheels. Simply pull the model backward (as the name suggests) and release it to move the model(s) forward.

Vehicle with Steering
This vehicle introduces axle pivot steering to your drive models! Learn how steering works as you build your model. A double trapezoid layout allows the car to drive through curves. This element consists of an axle, a tie rod and two steering arms. Watch as you turn the steering wheel in a specific direction and the wheels follow suit.

Offroad Vehicle with Steering and Spring Suspension
Build on what you learned from the steering model, this vehicle adds a spring suspension system. Learn why this system is so important for offroad vehicles as you discover how suspension allows the wheels of this model to follow irregularities in the road. This increases passenger comfort as well as driving safety.

Offroad Vehicle with Pullback Motor
This model is the culmination of what you've learned so far using the Cars and Drives set. Use the instructions to install a pullback motor in your offroad vehicle with steering and suspension functions. This will help you test the directional stability of your model and experiment with arresting your steering capabilities. Track improvements as you tighten and/or loosen the axles. (For additional functionality, this model can also be combined with a remote control)

fischertechnik Mechanic + Static 2.0
fischertechnik Mechanic + Static 2.0
Our Price: $122.00

fischertechnik Mechanic and Static 2 is the definitive technical construction set for future engineers and technicians. This comprehensive set explores how a shaft drive and/or manual transmission work; demonstrates the function of a planetary gear; and allows you to design a stable bridge. fischertechnik encourages young builders to learn a range of basic mechanical concepts, while assembling over 30 versatile models.

Discover the principles of technology through play! The fischertechnik Mechanic and Static 2 set provides access to the fischertechnik eLearning portal, which contains exciting, instructional activity information, videos and tutorials. With 500 fischertechnik parts, young builders can construct one of 30 different models as they explore mechanics and statics concepts.

Some of the models include:

  • Tractor model (examples of different transmissions)
  • Bridge model
  • Planetary Gear model
  • and many more!

Follow the detailed, step-by-step instructions to complete each model. Like many fischertechnik sets, young engineers are also encouraged to use what they've learned from the models to create their own designs. Use the 500 fischertechnik parts to design something new!

Best for ages 9+.


fischertechnik Electronics
fischertechnik Electronics
Our Price: $159.00

fischertechnik Electronics is a construction set focused on teaching the basic principles of electronics. This set encourages builders to explore simple circuits, series and parallel connections, electronic circuits with transistors, capacitors, resistors and LEDs. The foundation of the set, the electronic module, is a control with 24 fixed programs, 2 motor outputs, 3 analog inputs and potentiometers for controlling the speed of the motor. With fischertechnik Electronics you can construct many fascinating and functional models, from a simple flashlight to a controllable ventilating fan and more. This set also includes a dynamic activity booklet that will help you build up to 12 different models.

fischertechnik Electronics is part of fischertechnik's STEM Education Fundamentals line. This set provides young learners with resources that both promotes creativity and guides them into the world of electronic technology. Like most fischertechnik construction sets, it encourages learning through play.

With the 260 fischertechnik parts, builders can construct one of the 12 included models:

  • Ship see-saw
