Young tinkerers from grade 6 upwards have built autonomous electric vehicles in seven teams for competition at tüftelPark Pilatus. A tricky undertaking in which they were actively supported by the tüftelPark team and experts from the Maxon and Leister companies.
In the picture, you can see the tinkerers in front of the Leister Technologies AG company building in Sarnen.
In the picture, you can see Harun Amin and Lionel Straub, both from the team “Kings” with their winning vehicle. Congratulations from Leister on your victory.

Stefan Vogler, President of the tüftelPark Pilatus Association and Member of the Leister Management, says: “We aim to introduce children and young people to technology and its job profiles in a playful way, to promote talent and to get them excited about tinkering. After all, today's young tinkerers may be the skilled workers of tomorrow.
Samuel Friedrich, Managing Director of tüftelParks Pilatus, is delighted with the interest shown by young people and their parents: “At tüftelPark Pilatus we convey the fascination for technology to children and young people. We choose our offerings carefully, because we also want to encourage the inventive, craft, technical and design talents of tinkerers who have not yet discovered their potential. The competition always shows the enthusiasm with which the teams work together very impressively.”
