Teaching STEM knowledge and key skills
Movements like Fridays for Future show that children and teenagers are keenly interested in tackling today’s social challenges. They are eager to explore topics such as climate change, biodiversity degradation or future mobility. We want our projects to enable young people between the ages of ten and 16 to actively address and find answers to global issues in the STEM environment. To do this, they need not only mathematical, technical and scientific knowledge, but interdisciplinary skills such as creativity, teamwork and critical thinking as well.
Our projects also support adults who help children and teenagers acquire these skills. That includes not only teachers but also social workers, media educators, librarians and other professionals. After all, we consider it extremely important for schools to work with outside places of learning.
