EiQ Building Kit
PCS Edventures is passionate about inspiring an interest in engineering concepts in children. This PCS fischertechnik kit has more than 400 fischertechnik manipulatives and an instruction manual that guides children through the construction of 48 exciting builds! The options for customization are countless! This hands-on experience is a perfect introduction to science concepts such as mechanical engineering, structural engineering, physics, gear ratios, and much more!
The EiQ set comes complete with more than 400 manipulatives, an instruction manual with 48 builds, a high-grade storage bin, and a sorting tray. This kit is perfect for any after-school or home setting as a supplement to STEM or engineering education. With exciting builds and advanced manipulatives, students create, engineer, and explore STEM topics on their own, further developing an interest in important STEM skills.
The hands-on experience with engineering concepts will get students interested in learning and is a perfect introduction to science concepts such as structural engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, gear ratios and much more. Construction opportunities include a model helicopter, a carousel ride, a sewing machine, a race car, and other exciting builds!
RiQ Brain 5.0 Package
The PCS BrainTM is an Arduino compatible robotic microcontroller that responds to the commands sent to it by the PCS Cortex programming environment. Use The Brain to program devices that walk, roll, and shake as you explore computer programming in its most exciting way - Robotics! The Brain is designed be an open platform, both through its Arduino heart, and through its unique housing which was designed to connect to all major building systems such as LEGO®, fischertechnik®, K’NEX®, Erector® and others. The Brain even has the ability to add on R/C standard nuts and bolts so you can bolt it on to anything. The PCS Brain is designed to be open ended, extensible, and flexible and to encourage creativity - just like your own brain.

RiQ Classic Bluetooth Dongle (Windows, Mac, Android)
Used with the PCS Brain microcontroller, part of the RiQ robot package, this dongle will allow you to communicate with your Brain wirelessly! Either using a tablet or bluetooth enabled computer, you can send programs created on the Cortex programming environment directly to your Brain to make it run. This Bluetooth dongle is compatible with laptop computers, desktop computers, and android tablet.
*If you are using an iPad, this dongle is not compatible! Be sure to check out the special Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) dongle offered.
RiQ BLE Dongle (iPad)
This dongle uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to communicate with devices wirelessly. Specifically this dongle is designed to be used with iPads, which require BLE technology. Used with the PCS robot called RiQ, this dongle allows the microcontroller called The Brain to be controlled and programmed wirelessly from an iPad tablet!
*If you are not using an iPad (or BLE compatible device) do not use the BLE dongle - check out the classic Bluetooth dongle!
