Hong Kong is the first place in the world, through us, the sole distributor of fischertechnik, has created the world-first integration between the BBC micro:bit/Kitronik motor driver board from the UK, and the German fischertechnik modelling kit (from simple machines, to physics law to  real-world industrial simulation through modelling).   See the full range of fischertechnik STEM solutions here.   Everyone can now easily, neatly model the real world and add further creativity through the BBC micro:bit.    Science in STEM in particular can come alive by combining fischertechnik and the BBC micro:bit - such as through the Green Energy kit.
