Objectives

  • The aim of the MINT-​Course consists in improving science education at school in the MINT areas.

  • Participants gain a better general education about the natural sciences and are better qualified for studies and professions in the natural sciences and technology.

  • Science education has to start early; the teaching units are designed as a spiral curriculum for all grade levels from elementary school to the Gymnasium.

  • In this spiral curriculum, students have the opportunity of developing their concepts and theories stepwise at each level.

  • Scientists and teachers are closely cooperating to develop teaching units on central topics from physics, chemistry, and informatics.

  • Teaching units are developed on the basis of recent empirical research on learning and instruction.

  • Cognitively activating forms of learning such as prompts for self-​explanations, instructions for meta-cognitive questions, and inquiry learning are integrated into these teaching units.

Methodology

 

Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones
