Learning outcomes:
This course is part of the "MINToring" project, which is part of a qualification initiative by the Federal Government. The Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft (sdw), together with the BMBF and regional partners, have launched this project in order to get more young people interested in the MINT subjects, strengthen their interest in them and motivate them to study such subjects.
The course will provide the skills necessary to continuously advise and support young people in choosing a field of study.
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to develop and supervise workshops for project work in MINT subjects. This will help them to impart important background knowledge to their workshop participants (students up from the 11th grade and first-year university students) and to assist them when necessary.
