spiel gut (play well)

The "spiel gut" seal of approval is awarded by the Arbeitsausschuss Kinderspiel und Spielzeug e.V. (Working Committee for Children's Games and Toys) for special toys. The "spiel gut" award is aimed at educationally valuable toys in Germany and has been regarded as an award for outstanding play materials since 1954. With this award, "spiel gut" wants to promote good toys, raise awareness of the importance of play and advise consumers. 

The play material is tested in test families or institutions and evaluated in an extensive questionnaire. Afterwards, the product, together with the experiences from the practical testing, is presented to the "spiel gut" committee, which then decides on the award.
The panel is made up of experts from science, practice and from many fields that are important for games and toys: e.g. medicine, education, technology, chemistry, environmental protection, design, architecture, sociology and psychology. Most of the experts are parents themselves. The evaluation is independent of the toy industry and trade.

Spielen macht Schule (Playing is educational)

To make learning easier for elementary school students, the “ZNL TransferZentrum für Neurowissenschaften und Lernen” (ZNL Transfer Center for Neuroscience and Learning) and the Frankfurt association “Mehr Zeit für Kinder” (More Time for Kids) started the “Spielen macht Schule” initiative in 2007.
Elementary schools that apply with a concept can win free equipment for a play room. The focus is on finding smart ways to integrate playing into instruction, and giving students opportunities to learn through play outside of school hours.
fischertechnik promotes these initiatives.  Some of our products were tested by the ZNL TransferZentrum für Neurowissenschaften und Lernen in Ulm. The test focused on the educational aspects of the toys in relation to the social, personal, cognitive, and motor-skills development of children between 6 and 10 years of age. The following construction sets were recommended by the teachers and psychologists at the TransferZentrum für Neurowissenschaften und Lernen (ZNL) for the “Spielen macht Schule” campaign:
• fischertechnik ADVANCED Universal 3
• fischertechnik PROFI Oeco Energy
• fischertechnik ROBOTICS TXT Discovery Set

Sustainability

Sustainability combines aspects such as environmental protection, technology and innovation as well as economic success and social responsibility. At fischertechnik, we see all of this as one of our learning processes for living, working and managing in harmony with nature.
