“Clean, green future through STEM sports clubs” is a European partnership of seven VET schools and educational organizations who will develop “STEM clubs” as a new learning and teaching method for STEM based motivation, orientation, preparation and dropout prevention in VET. It is intended as an ongoing leisure activity, as entertaining as sport for young students aged from 10 up to 18 years. All valuable results will be available for other European regions who face comparable challenges.
World Robot Olympiad (WRO)
The German level of the STEM competition “World Robot Olympiad (WRO)” took place in Chemnitz on 17 and 18 September 2022. Germany’s best teams presented their achievements in the fields of robotics, technology and teamwork. 108 teams competed against each other. Teams from Chemnitz also qualified for the Germany final.
In order to help students primarily from class 11-12 find their best choice in the maze of higher education offers, the Öveges Students’ Laboratory organizes tours in the laboratory. Due to these tours students may try out the tips and tricks of assembling, testing, as well as they can experience how a 3D printer is working and thus be part of the planning phase, too.
