The international project Authentic-STEM
Conception Cooperation Project Integrated Career Orientation Program
The basic idea of the project is to give young people the opportunity to work on substantial and authentic mathematical problems from companies (e.g. modeling, optimization, big data, product design, etc.) in project teams, solving the problem together. The companies and the employees responsible for the project work closely with experienced student teachers, teachers and scientific staff to introduce the problems in a way that is appropriate for the target group, thus enabling interested young people to experience directly how they can apply their school knowledge in the working world. (Also have a look at the German partner project.)
We are happy about the support of the project by the Consulate General Düsseldorf.
