Campus Partners launch MINT Future League in the Braunschweig/Wolfsburg region

The MINT Zukunftsliga (STEM Future League) is underway! The aim of the MINT Zukunftsliga in the Braunschweig-Wolfsburg region is to complement existing educational offers for STEM subjects by providing regular and low-threshold offers. The term STEM (MINT in German) comprises the subject areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The target group is children and young people aged between 10 and 16 and particularly girls, young women, young refugees and young people from peripheral areas. A league model provides additional motivation for the young people. STEM courses will be offered according to demand at 10 to 12 anchor points, such as youth centres and schools, in the Braunschweig-Wolfsburg region, thus expanding the circle of young people interested in STEM subjects and encouraging the next generation. STEM education offers should be targeted, low-threshold and regular extracurricular offers for young people across the whole region. The courses take place in the afternoons after school, at weekends or as part of holiday programmes and last between 90 and 120 minutes. The average number of participants will be between 9 and 12.
