The Media Portal of the Siemens Stiftung offers free, open, quality-checked teaching materials for STEM subjects – recently only under open license. The more than 3,500 Open Educational Resources (OER) on the larger themes of health, energy, and the environment can be modified, adapted, and shared. This makes it possible to adapt them to the cultural and educational needs of various regions and countries and to the individual requirements of the students. With this, the Siemens Stiftung is doing its part to create more equal access to education and opportunity.

The prepared classroom materials promote modern teaching methods such as research-based learning, inclusive learning, and cooperative learning. Currently, 45,000 people from 120 countries are making use of the diverse media types – from worksheets to content packages for interactive whiteboards to exciting educational games. The materials are appropriate for all age groups and school types and are available in English, German, and Spanish.

There will be a separate student's area with a selection of suitably prepared media on the topics of energy, the environment, and health for browsing, trying out, or experimenting.
