Air Racer

Air Racer

Propel innovation straight from the Everglades with the Air Racer! Students perform engineering tradeoffs, designing the racer for speed, distance, or style, as they construct the frame and propeller blades using an electric motor. Using real tools they learn from experimentation, crafting, and iterative design as they progress through the engineering process to create unique designs.

Electromagnetic Crane

Electromagnetic Crane

The TeacherGeek® Electromagnetic Crane Kit offers the classic activity of designing a crane but with a "green" twist—tailor the design to solve recycling and waste disposal issues. Students build and experiment with an electromagnet, adding a crane mechanism for control. They innovate by evolving their creations through the engineering and design process. Learn about electromagnetism, magnetic fields, and simple machines in this fun activity.

Mini Wind Turbine

Mini Wind Turbine

Harness the power of the wind and explore alternative energy solutions with the TeacherGeek® Mini Wind Turbine activity. Students design a turbine to capture energy from wind and convert it into electricity, then reiterate as part of the engineering process to invent unique and more efficient designs. It's truly green engineering, tested through inquiry and empowered by experimentation.

Rubber Band Racer

Rubber Band Racer

Ready, steady, go! With the TeacherGeek® Rubber Band Racer, students harness energy (potential energy) stored in rubber bands to propel (releasing kinetic energy) their unique Rubber Band Racer designs. Free document resources enable students to build a racer vehicle and explore potential and kinetic energy, Newton's second law, mechanical advantage, and friction.

Gears Tinker Set

Gears Tinker Set

How do gears work? Do they rotate together, at the same speed, in the same direction, or with similar force? This activity allows students to investigate gears, growing their understanding as they tinker, experiment, and even engineer amusement park rides. Optional labs teach fractions, ratios, proportions, and mechanical advantage.

Hydraulic Claw

Hydraulic Claw

Get a grip on STEM learning with the TeacherGeek® Hydraulic Claw activity. Students design and construct an arcade-style hydraulic claw controlled by fluid power. After constructing an initial claw, they then engineer unique designs by incorporating recycling bin materials (or 3-D printed end effectors) or extra TeacherGeek® components. They learn about simple machines, fluid power, and Pascal's law while applying the engineering and design process.
