Discover Robotics & Programming:

Combine an application-based curriculum with high-quality mechanical building pieces for a scaffolded experience, teaching basic programming logic in the context of mechanical and engineering design process challenges. With curriculum developed around a growth mindset and creative problem-solving skills, Discover Robotics and Programming is flexible, empowering educators to integrate hands-on STEM into virtually any educational environment.

Discover Robotics & Physics:

This application-based learning series has been expertly scaffolded to support essential problem-solving and collaborative skills, focusing on the engineering design process to formulate and develop a deep understanding of robotics and the incredible roles they play in our society. By utilizing high-quality, reusable fishertechnik ® building manipulatives, right out of the box, virtually any learning environment can start their next STEMventure.

LABCard Curriculum:

With the use of the PCS LABCards, educators can take advantage of a differentiated instruction model where challenging concepts are broken down so that students can quickly master skills and move at their own pace towards a final performance task design project.


How to Use Your LABCards:

Each LABCard includes two step-by-step projects, two challenges, and one design project. Each project introduces new programming skills by guiding students through step-by-step activities. Two engaging challenges give students the opportunity to apply this knowledge before testing their understanding in a design project. Key terms are listed at the end of each card for reference. Along the bottom are three questions to check for understanding. Use them in discussion, written reflection, or informal conversation to probe and deepen students’ understanding. At the end of every level, a final end design project challenges students to synthesize their learning with creativity and critical thinking.


Why We LOVE Them:

The LABCard approach is intended to provide educators with a tool that enables a student-directed experience. Educators are empowered to provide facilitation, coaching and mentoring as students work independently, in their own fashion. Almost all learning environments including after-school programs, clubs and a wide variety of classroom models, can be supported using the LABCard curriculum. Each LABCard is assigned a point value for quick and easy assessment of progress through each level and to provide students with immediate recognition of their accomplishments. Students earn 5 points for each card they successfully complete. Each level includes four 5-point cards and culminates with a 5-point end design project, for a total of 25 points per level. By completing all four levels, students can earn up to 100 points!
