„Nothing that we utilize in our daily lives would be possible without science or without people who follow their dreams with courage, curiosity and a sense for research. That’s why I am so delighted that we can add 24 schools to our network of STEM schools today. These school show an excellent STEM profile. They challenge their students to work at the highest levels and the broadest spectrum, they offer opportunities for hands-on experimentations and research and they work in cooperation with local businesses and scientific institutions. STEM schools in the MINT-ED network are light houses for school development in general. We could and should all push further for a positive change in perception of all STEM subjects.” Says Dr. Mark Hamprecht at the ceremony.
Schools in the MINT-EC network have access to a large offering of professional development and special programs for students, teachers and principals. MINT-EC also supports collaborations of STEM schools with each other and with outside organizations and scientific institutions.
