Understand & Change the world with science

The aim of the program is to make those who are interested in science aware of their responsibility and to enable them to make a difference with their knowledge. three core competences are fostered: critical reflection, communication and social cohesion. This will transform the participants into the critical, creative and cooperative problem solvers we need to tackle present and future societal challenges.

  • Young people interested in the topics of digitization and / or climate change.

Science is a way of finding things out. It’s a way of testing that’s real. A way of testing your believes. - Richard Feynman (Physicist)
