Within its “Education” area of focus, Siemens Stiftung is concentrating on expansion and further thematic development of the international Experimento educational program. As a result, Siemens Stiftung will no longer be hosting the student competition in math, science, and technology.

After eight years of contests, we are quite proud of the results of an assessment conducted for us by the TNS Infratest opinion research institute following presentation of the last award in 2014. The results confirm that participants and project partners strongly identified with the contest and that it was highly effective. The contest was assessed as demanding and future-oriented.
We wish to thank all those who helped with, participated in and supported the contest in the past years for their hard work and dedication.
