It was not until early 2015 that I was finally able to identify who the designer and author was for the Curriculum Kybernetik I and II curriculums. It was Edzard Timmer. I had found address information in documentation that I had ‘discovered’ in the LectronMW era archive binders and Mr. Timmer had remained at the same address since the 1970’s. At my request, my research colleague, Günther Stabe, called the phone number I had found and received an invitation to visit Mr. Timmer at home in the Summer of 2015. Sadly Mr. Timmer was not well enough to converse with Mr. Stabe but Mr. Timmer’s wife and daughter gave many Lectron System related documents and photos to Mr. Stabe for Lectron.Info‘s archives. Mr. Stabe’s favorite photo was the one below showing the full realization of Mr. Timmer’s ‘vehicle’.
The Curriculum Kybernetik I was listed in the Braun catalog as a Schülerübungssysteme product line model. It was also a standalone model which meant that all the blocks and components were included to go through all the experiments in the the Kybernetik 1 Lehr-und Lernkartei (teaching and learning cards) documentation.
Some of the Curriculum Kybernetik I components were included with the Schülerübungssysteme Ausbausytem 2 M model. These included the Kybernetik I Lehr-und Lernkartei, long cables, and two motors.
I do have a little syllabus summary in English for the Kybernetik 1 that the Ideas For Education company produced for their branding of this model.
