The fischertechnik education Smart Physics learning concept combines physical and digital worlds with a playful introduction to physics. With its comprehensive range of accompanying materials, the set provides a quick introduction to the subject and tasks. Creative experimentation ensures a lasting understanding and a successful experience of hands-on physics lessons.

fischertechnik’s STEM Smart Physics set contains 107 parts with which ten models can be built, such as various pendulum shapes or a string. The models allow various physical experiments to be conducted. Accelerated bodies, harmonic oscillations and the dispersion and spectrum of sound – thrilling tasks await learners, allowing them to test hypotheses and explore the laws of physics in a practical way. Through creative, independent experimentation and building models with the components, young people simultaneously develop their fantasy and team spirit while gaining confidence.

The physical behaviour of the various models can be read through the sensors of pupils’ smartphones using the phyphox app contained in the learning concept, providing an immediate and detailed analysis of the results. Through the combination of theory and practice, learners obtain a profound understanding of the principles of physics while developing their problem-solving skills and analytical thinking. The educational accompanying material developed especially for the curriculum by engineers and teachers allows the concept to be applied directly in lessons.

fischertechnik teaching material sets

fischertechnik’s STEM teaching concepts offer fascinating applications in robotics, renewable energy, pneumatics and artificial intelligence, as well as many other subject fields. Pupils explore key future technologies in a playful and hands-on manner, gaining digital skills step by step. The fischertechnik education sets convey knowledge that will be essential to many careers, preparing learners for their future. Teachers are supported in delivering relevant learning objectives in STEM subjects in line with abilities and the curriculum through stimulating and exciting lessons with the fischertechnik range of teaching materials. The learning concepts range from years 1 to 13 in primary and secondary schools through to vocational training and higher education. fischertechnik thereby enables schools of every kind to successfully navigate the digital transformation and deliver 21st-century skills. Young people learn skills such as critical thinking, reflective capacity, problem-solving, personal initiative and creativity.

fischertechnik’s reputation for combining successful learning with fun has led teachers and psychologists at the Transfer Center for Neurosciences and Learning (ZNL) to recommend fischertechnik’s educational construction kits for Germany’s Spielen macht Schule school initiative.

In addition to toy sets and educational construction kits specifically designed for school lessons, fischertechnik also offers preassembled, compact function and simulation models for training and demonstration purposes. Training, development or presentations: fischertechnik’s training models are used across the globe for planning and simulation. They can be used to plan, develop and test industrial processes and offer versatile uses, particularly in the field of Industry 4.0.



The fischer Group of Companies, headquartered in Waldachtal in Germany’s northern Black Forest, generated sales of 1.16 billion euro in 2023 with a global workforce of around 5,900 employees. The family-owned company operates 52 subsidiaries around the world and exports to around 120 countries. It includes the five divisions: fischer fixing systems, fischer Automotive, fischertechnik, fischer Consulting and fischer Electronic Solutions.
fischer fixing systems is the technological market leader in key areas of fixing technology. fischer offers products that deliver technical perfection to a wide range of customers, from do-it-yourselfers to tradespeople to key account partners.
