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
