Today more than ever before, young people need a solid education to tackle the big challenges of our times. To help them, we want to make education in Germany even better, especially in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We pursue three types of activities: projects, partnerships and studies.
… target 10- to 16-year-olds and the adults guiding them on their educational journey. We enable children and teenagers to address and solve real-life science, technology, engineering and mathematics challenges, learning valuable hard and soft skills in the process. Our projects are conducted in schools and settings such as museums, libraries and youth centers.
… aim to affect the educational system itself, which is quite a daunting challenge. So daunting, in fact, that it’s best to bring in partners. They include educational administrators, associations, research institutions or other foundations. It is them who we reach out to so they can help us improve the educational system.
… create new knowledge and help to shift the educational landscape. After all, if you want to change something, you first need empirical evidence of what is going wrong. To gather that evidence, we turn to scholars, researchers and highly regarded polling organizations.
