Science and Technology: Starting early

Studies and experience have shown that young people exhibit much greater interest and engagement with natural sciences, the earlier they can encounter and experience them. There is every reason for curricula from across the globe to explicitly emphasise the importance of youngsters discovering things for themselves and learning by investigation during their lessons.

It is for all the reasons mentioned above that allowing students to carry out their own experiments, even at the earliest stage of their education, is of major importance. It allows young people to establish scientific facts in a very specific, hands-on way, to practice the working techniques essential to each discipline and to gain in-depth understanding of them.

Safe experimenting

MEKRUPHY experiment apparatus, including the associated low-voltage power supplies and measuring instruments, is in total compliance with all the demands of latest educational safety standards. Moreover, as long as MEKRUPHY’s experiment instructions are followed precisely, students are exposed to no mechanical, electrical, thermal, chemical or radioactive hazards at all.

Six versatile student experiment sets for lower level lessons

In the field of science and technology, a cross-disciplinary, phenomenon-oriented approach to the natural sciences is emphasized for secondary education:

The MEKRUPHY experiment set SEEING & HEARING introduces students to the functions of the eye and ear, as well as the basic principles of experimentation, through simple student experiments.

In the ELECTRICITY & MAGNETISM experiment set, they explore basic phenomena and components of the electrical circuit, conductors/non-conductors, and the effects of magnets.

SOIL/FOOD/ENERGY are the focuses of this versatile experiment kit on future topics of ecology, food, and classic and renewable forms of energy.

HEAT contains a variety of fundamental experiments on thermodynamics, energy, energy transfer, and energy generation.

MACHINES & CONSTRUCTIONS introduces the basics of mechanics and technology: in addition to various bridge structures, it covers gears, drive shafts, and transmissions.

With the WATER & AIR experiment set, students discover many interesting properties of everyday substances.

Easy-to-understand accompanying material also for non-expert teachers

The teacher’ manuals, which are available in addition to the student booklets, are deliberately kept accessible to non-expert teachers: they are intended to enable even non-science teachers to easily access student experiments and to dispel any fears they may have about teaching science.
