    Pupils from 6th to 8th grade construct different real world models at Design and technology obligatory primary schoool subject. Usually one of didactical construction set is used for that purpose (Fischertechnics, Lego). Thesis presents economical construction set Pila Mini (Burkhardt Leitner Constructiv) as an possible alternative to the used construction set. It is suitable for building real constructions in dimension as well in load. Pupils are motivated to solve an actual real world problem scalled down to their level of knowledge. Group target is Design and technology primary school teacher.A comparison of the chosen construction set Fischertechnik is given regarding number of different assembling possibilities, maximum load, variety of real world models/application possibilities, and price. Furthermore it contains planning and constructioning following a special model for construction assignment. Program tool for three dimensional drawing was used for planning and virtual assembling of the construction. Construction assignment example is described along with all the instructions for virtual and physical assembling. At the end, several constructions (a bench, three different regales and a wall) made with the chosen construction set are presented.
