TechCard - Pneumatics - 20 Model Class Kit

A large kit exploring pneumatics; from the Class Kit range. Each Class Kit contains the components; templates and instructions to build 20 models - two each of 10 different designs. TechCard is ideal for both 'Focused Practical Tasks' and 'Design & Ma

The Pneumatics Class Kit enables pupils to develop two each of ten different controllable models using simple pneumatic systems. The
models include realistic working machines like a lifting bridge, hoist and clamp as well as a tipper truck, earth mover and robot arm. The
last two models use a twin pneumatic system for particularly realistic operation. In addition to these models there is a snapping alligator,
rower, flapping wings and a crawling monster!
Using a large piston (syringe) to power the mechanism with a smaller piston inside the mode allows for stretch in the tubing and the fact
that air ‘squashes’ a little when compressed. Before assembling the pneumatic system, extend one piston and close the other. In many
applications the nozzle of the piston can simply be passed through a hole in a TechCard component and secured in place by fixing the
tubing to the end. As with all types of mechanism, friction can cause problems. Pupils need to keep friction to a minimum by making sure
mechanisms move freely and are properly aligned.
The simple pneumatic system demonstrates that air has substance and that it takes up space. When one piston is closed the air is forced
along the tubing where it pushes the other piston ‘open’.

TechCard™ Technology helps children understand how the real world works. All around us are mind boggling machines and structures. Most of these, no matter how complex, are arrangements of simple elements. Exploring these simple elements opens the door to reveal how the mechanical world works. Most construction toys focus on the end result using complicated components that obscure their function. TechCard™ Technology deliberately uses simple materials and components to help demystify the mechanical world. Originally developed for and used in schools around the world, TechCard™ Technology is now available in a range of entertaining construction toys including a highly successful series with the publisher Dorling Kindersley and others selected by the Science Museum. Total sales of all TechCard™ Technology products is now approaching two million so far…
