Fischertechnik workshops for kids 7 years to 18 years old

Our 5 module Fischertechnik workshops are an essential introduction for EVERYONE to understand the basic principles of Science and Technology.

Learning more about science & technology through fun & hands-on workshops

Students construct and investigate models to better comprehend aspects of Mechanics & Statics, Pneumatics, Dynamics, Electronics and Robotics. In doing so, they actively engage with their own learning processes and build up a valuable knowledge base that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.
During the modular workshops, we investigate inventions and the underlying scientific principles supporting them.

What to expect at the workshops:

Module 1: Gears and gear ratios: We build gear cars using different gear ratios, and race these cars to determine performance and better understand the principle of gear ratios.

Module 2:  Introducing Pneumatics:  working with compressed air.  Students build a lifting platform and a catapult to better understand how compressed air is used in industry.  We measure the launching distances of our catapults, and think of ways to improve performance. 

Module  3:  Dynamics:  the study of movement in physics:  We build obstacle courses to investigate the motion of bodies under the action of forces, e.g. slopes at different angels, a Newton’s cradle and 360 degree loops. 

Module 4:  Electronics:  Students build different electrical circuits and learn more about series and parallel connections. They make use of a multi-meter to measure voltage, current and resistance. 

Module 5:  Robotics:  We learn to program and control fischertechnik models with easy-to-use graphic software.
