Title - Hydraulics Trainer
Engineering Technology - Hydraulics Trainer
STEM learning packages have been designed to provide practical real world problem solving tasks and activities within the classroom or lab environment. These activities will provide an engaging approach that helps instructors show contextualized linkages between Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

The Hydraulics Trainer offers a classroom-based resource for practical investigation of hydraulic components and systems.

The trainer consists of a rig and push fit hydraulic hoses to allow rapid circuit connection and setup. Students can investigate cylinders and valves in a variety of circuit configurations and input pressures.

This trainer includes a curriculum CD containing theory and practical learning tasks, as well as tutor support materials.

The trainer can also be used in conjunction with our Optional Cloud-based Software , which offers online practical electronics tasks as well as interactive theory presentations, investigations, and assessments, which link directly to the practical activities carried out using this resource.
