STEM Connection

Bionics serves as a link between biology and technology, and the Bionics Kit is a perfect addition to any integrative STEM education program, STEM academy, or early STEM education initiative.

Together with its free online content, the Bionics Kit is a low-cost STEM teaching tool that emphasizes innovation, problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity. It supports student learning, building the knowledge and skills necessary to apply toward design solutions that solve problems in science, technology, engineering, and math fields.

Working with the Bionics Kit promotes the following skills in learners:

  • Creativity
  • Practical work
  • Interdisciplinary work
  • Problem-solving orientation
  • Critical thinking
  • Support in competent handling of digital media
  • Innovative ability through enthusiasm for inspiring innovations
  • Bionic work

 

 

 

 

 

STEM becomes STEAM

STEM means Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM encompasses educational activities from secondary education and thus from pre-school to university as well as in out-of-school places of learning. Recently, the first letter of “type – A” has been added; STEM has thus become STEAM. This is intended to bring fantasy and artistic creativity back into focus for the pupils.

4 Key Competencies

Together with the freely accessible teaching materials, the bionics learning construction kit is an optimal STEM teaching aid that focuses on creativity, communication, cooperation, lateral thinking and problem-solving competence (4K model). It supports pupils in a playful way in learning scientific and technical content and also serves as an orientation for STEM professions or STEM study courses.

3D Printing

Bionics4Education combines Maker Education and STEM education on the basis of a project-based learning approach. By simply assembling the robots, learners can make meaningful extensions themselves using 3D printers.
