From the manufacturer
TEACH TECH features robotic kits that explore renewable energy and coding! TEACH TECH follows the Learn By Doing philosophy found in all of Elenco’s products. With TEACH TECH, kids can enjoy hours of educational fun while boosting their confidence and critical thinking skills. Products in this line appeal to anyone who enjoys using their hands to build, tinker, and bring to life their creations with movement, coding, and programming. Forward-thinking kids can explore alternative energy with kits that highlight solar, hydraulic, or wind power.
Developed in 2019 with a fundamental focus in STEM education, the TEACH TECH product line is comprised of three categories:
These build-it-yourself robots teach children the fundamentals of robotics and coding, while incorporating problem-solving and creativity. Tobbie II and Mech-5 are ingenious coding robots that will keep children challenged and engaged, while still having fun. Electronic Coding Robot: Tobbie II; Mechanical Coding Robot: Mech-5.
With alternative energy playing such a pivotal role, there is no better time than now to start children on the path to learning basic concepts behind these technologies. All TEACH TECH Green-Energy robots are powered by either water, wind or sun, so there are no batteries required. Green-Energy Robots: Solar Rover; Solar Mini-Racer; Solar Fun 6; Air Screamer; Rivet-Rex 12; Meta.4; SolarBot.14
In the classroom or at home, Mechanical-Robotic Kits have a big impact on STEM education. Learn about robots, and have fun doing it! There are numerous projects, activities and tasks that these robots can accomplish. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination! Mechanical-Robotic Kits: Robotic Arm Wire Controlled; Zivko the Robot; King Lizard Robot; MotoBot.4; HydroBot Arm Kit
Fine Motor Skills
Manual dexterity is improved by the increased use of their hands in a skillful, coordinated way to grasp and manipulate objects and demonstrate small, precise movements. Mastery of small-motor skills will allow your child or student greater independence.
Recent research findings show an important relationship between children’s ability to physically interact with their environment and their cognitive development. TEACH TECH products focus on demonstrating these skills through repeated actions that process information received through the eyes and use it to direct the movements of the hands.
TEACH TECH products are specifically engineered to help kids learn logical thinking, trouble shooting, and reasoning skills. Kids will love to explore and problem solve with our STEM-focused robotic kits.
Our educational, make-it-yourself kits guide children to follow along with detailed, comprehensive instructions. Future engineers will have the ability to acquire new skills through hands-on learning.
Elenco and STEM
“Learn by doing” is Elenco’s registered trademark and every product that it creates is rooted in this principle. From its humble roots in a Chicago-area basement to an innovator in the STEM movement, Elenco — the makers of SNAP CIRCUITS — continues to introduce innovative and educational products that drive discovery and imagination. Elenco’s products have been endorsed by K-12 educators globally and used in schools, libraries, museums, after-school and homeschool programs, STEM and Maker programs, and at home. Elenco is closely connected to the “Maker Movement”, and its educational tools are helping children learn to invent and create much earlier than ever before. Elenco was STEM before the term “STEM” even existed and Elenco continues to pave the way for education in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
