Develop future skills with Fischertechnik Innovative learning concepts for hands-on STEM lessons

The results of the latest PISA study have once again highlighted the importance of the main STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) for the successful future of our students. The fischertechnik learning environment enables students to learn and practise these essential STEM and social emotional future skills in order to be able to navigate in a fast-changing world elevated by new technologies. The manufacturer of teaching materials is introducing many new learning concepts to the market to meet the current needs of educational institutions.

The fischertechnik learning continuum is a fun way to acquire STEM knowledge and build skills for a successful future.

The PISA study demonstrates that students with strong STEM skills not only perform better, they also build a solid foundation for their future careers. This is where fischertechnik comes in with its innovative sets that revolutionise STEM classes.

fischertechnik’s STEM and robotics learning environment offers a deeper understanding of STEM topics while developing key 21st-century skills, also known as future skills. These skills include problem-solving, critical thinking, teamwork and working in collaboration – abilities that are not only important for academic success, but also lay the foundations for a successful career in an increasingly digitalised world.

Teachers and education experts are involved in the development of the comprehensive yet logically structured support material by fischertechnik, allowing the educational material to be quickly integrated into teaching concepts without requiring major preparation. Partners such as the Klett MEX education agency and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are involved in the development of the high-quality learning concepts.

fischertechnik’s learning concepts help to teach topics such as robotics, artificial intelligence, renewable energy and factory simulation, as well as the basics of electronics, mechanics, pneumatics and many other STEM subjects.

The fischertechnik learning concepts can be quickly integrated into a teaching concept without much preparation.

Robotics competitions offer a particularly exciting opportunity for children and teenagers to develop their future skills, which is why fischertechnik chose to become a new international partner of the World Robot Olympiad for 2024 and 2025. The prestigious manufacturer of teaching materials also formed a partnership with the European Schoolnet (EUN), an organisation that supports educational facilities across Europe. It works in close cooperation with schools, education ministries, teachers and other educational facilities to develop innovative educational approaches and to improve the pedagogical use of technology. The partnership also involves the integration of the Future Classroom Lab initiative that shows how innovative learning spaces can look like through state-of-the-art technology and innovative educational concepts.

The STEM and robotics learning continuum from fischertechnik not only offers an in-depth understanding of STEM topics, but also promotes the development of crucial 21st century skills, the so-called future skills.

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.
