Political visit from high up

The Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and Minister of State Dorothee Bär are impressed by fischertechnik

fischertechnik factory impressed Angela Merkel at this year’s Girls´ Day

The delight was written all over the face of the Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel. As girls presented her our fischertechnik factory’s simulation facility in the Federal Chancellery as a part of Girls’ Day, the PhD Physicist appeared fascinated.

24 school girls from Berlin had the opportunity to get to know the versatility of the MINT professions (Maths, Informatics, Natural Sciences, Technology) directly in the chancellery at the kick-off of the Girls’ Day. This could be particularly vividly presented through various projects that were exhibited in a technology obstacle course. Our fischertechnik factory was also in focus here. This was presented by a project team of Sopra Steria Consulting. The consulting company is using our factory since a long time for training purposes. Along with this factory, the factory of the future was presented, which greatly interested Angela Merkel.
