The decision for your future job is often already taken during childhood. Particularly in view of the lower birth rates during the latest years and an expected lack of qualified personnel it makes sense that the younger generation is early introduced to technical tasks and projects.
This is the aim of the association "Tfk – Technik für Kinder e.V.". Within the technical workshops children and teenagers have, among other things, the possibility to deal with technical issues. The focus is clearly on „learning by doing“. This means that own talents and gifts can be discovered playfully. Furthermore, the technical workshops contribute to a stronger network between schools, companies and universities.
Already since several years, STREICHER actively supports this institution. In 2014 the "Technikhaus für Kinder" was developed at the headquarters in Deggendorf. Since then, more than 60 junior inventors, aged between eight and seventeen, weekly meet in the modern equipped rooms. By using different tools they create products made of wood, metal or electronic engineering. From skateboard over desk to flashing light – creativity has no limits. The boys and girls are supervised by retired technicians, technical experts or even apprentices who will have their final examination in the near future. In this sense the „Tfk“ is a generation project.

Current opening hours of the "Technikhaus" in Deggendorf:
Tuesday to Friday from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
