for a sustainable future
We are committed to STEM education that promotes 21st century skills and a sustainable future.
In a world increasingly shaped by technology, STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) play a central role. To positively shape the evolving changes around us, we trust the approach. It is an interdisciplinary approach that combines specialized knowledge with the competencies of the 21st century. Together with our partners, we implement STEM education projects and networks that give children and young people hands-on experience, promote creative thinking, intercultural understanding, and open new horizons for them. This creates a basis for active participation and individual solutions to global challenges.
STEM + Climate:
For holistic climate change education
To counter climate change, we need to rethink our approach at the societal, ecological, and economic levels. With our projects, we promote, that helps make the complexity of the issue tangible, stabilize the environment around us, and strengthen resilience against the consequences of climate change.
STEM + Digitality:
For a future-oriented learning culture
Digitalization is changing our society and as a result also teaching and learning experiences. With and teachers training seminars, we support a shift in thinking toward a culture of digitality. After all, skills such as creativity, collaboration, communications, and critical thinking need to be acquired both analogously and digitally.
STEM + Health:
For healthy people and planet
Individual health is closely intertwined with the health of the immediate living environment as well as that of our planet. Our educational programs promote an understanding of this holistic approach so that teachers and students can take responsibility for their health and that of their fellow human beings and the environment.
