STEAM-Make@thon: Mobility of tomorrow – a problem-solving challenge
The Make@thon "Mobility of Tomorrow" invites students from grades 9 to 13 in Berlin to tackle important issues of our future. Accompanied by mentors, participants work independently in small groups to find solutions that are as scientific as they are creative.
Despite all improvements to the bicycle network in city centers and the optimization of traffic lights, long traffic jams are still the order of the day, exhaust fumes pollute the air we breathe, and cyclists are exposed to dangerous situations every day.
During a kick-off event, the participating tinkerers learn about the task at hand. They will enter into an exchange with various actors in Siemensstadt Square and be inspired by workshops, lectures, experiments and other exciting formats such as Escape Rooms and experimental settings for their solution ideas.
Christoph Biemann from "Sendung mit der Maus" and Philip Häusser from "Phils Physics" will be among the participants. The problem-solving challenge will be rounded off by a final event at which the best ideas will be honored. The event is sponsored by the Siemens Stiftung and organized by the University of Osnabrück.
Registration for interested students is still possible.
