German and STEM: A winning combination!
For mathematicians, computer-scientists, engineers, technicians, as well as experts in the field of sustainability, Germany offers a broad range of opportunities when it comes to higher education and career.
The inclusion of STEM content in the German language classroom, and conversely the thematization of Germany in STEM classes provides students with not only general language skills, but also builds their technical vocabulary.
The German-STEM Projects of the Goethe-Institut USA
- focus on interdisciplinary sustainable education
- gets students excited about German language while simultaneously imparting subject specific content
- can be implemented at various levels.
This project unites German and STEM teachers under the umbrella of Sustainability.
It promotes the implementation of sustainability issues in the classroom, exchange of knowledge, learning from best practice, and working across the curricula. The project gives teacher teams the opportunity to be trained about various sustainability topics (i.e.water, energy, climate, and consumption) by experts in Germany.
PASCH German STEM Workshop
PASCH-schools have excellent German and STEM-programs. How can German teachers integrate STEM disciplines such as math, physics, biology and chemistry into their German lessons and collaborate with their colleagues? Teachers dealt with this question during the PASCH workshop German and STEM at the Goethe-Institut Washington.
