school programs

Our workshops promote learning about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) through playful exploration.   It is our goal to promote STEM learning for our leaders of tomorrow, and to help our youngest women and men equally discover future opportunities in science and technology.

We offer tailor-made workshops for school classes and groups that are perfect for a STEM week or a class excursion! Perfect for MI or NMG project topics.   Robotics and interactive "hands-on" activities provide instant gratification and feedback essential for this age bracket, deepen acquired knowledge, and help STEM concepts come to life.

Developed with support from EPFL and ETHZ, and domain experts from ICT and Education, our workshops help cover Lehrplan 21 requirements. We encourage children to show us their creativity and use it in our learning programs.

All workshops are offered in both German and English, between 8:30 - 11:55 on normal School days unless otherwise specified.
