With two winning construction kits, fischertechnik is particularly well represented at this year's German Toy Award. The toy manufacturer is once again addressing pioneering topics that lay the foundation for future professionals. The Early Coding construction kit is the overall winner and also won first place in the Toys and Technology category. The child-friendly construction kit makes simple robot programming possible. Its fun fantasy robots are easy to assemble and even easier to programme and control. A child-friendly graphic programming interface soon provides successful results, and the robot moves in the programmed direction upon stringing commands together.
A total of three different models can be built with fischertechnik Early Coding. The construction kit contains everything that fully functional driving robots could need: Components to assemble it, a complete chassis with two motors, a controller with a Bluetooth interface, two infrared track sensors as well as two obstacle detection buttons and a battery compartment. There is no need for complex wiring. Early Coding is suitable for children aged 5 and above and offers a playful introduction to the world of informatics.
