What educators are saying

I've just begun to explore activities with pneumatics and hydraulics with my 8th graders and this is a fun way to get them focused.


Students will love designing, building, and battling these inexpensive robotic arms as they learn about the principles of hydraulics. The simple instructions make this an ideal S.T.E.M. maker lab for eager engineers in grades five through eight. Most of the simple and easily accessible materials can be reused year after year to keep the cost low. Complete illustrations make the construction process simple, but students can modify and improve the designs if they wish.
