Kinderuni FEST 2019 - A WORLD OF LEARNING

On November 1st, about 350 students from elementary and middle schools in New England joined us at “A World of Learning”  at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Based on the Goethe-Institut’s Digital Kinderuni, this event aimed to promote STE(A)M education and unite STE(A)M with the German language, while encouraging schools to incorporate research into their curricula.  After the opening by Johannes Ebert, Secretary General of the Goethe-Institut, the students participated in lectures, workshops, and science shows hosted by top German scientists, philosophers, and artists. Christoph Biemann, the star of the long-running German TV show “Sendung mit der Maus” (The Show with the Mouse) performed thought-provoking experiments and astronaut Reinhold Ewald talked about what it’s like to explore space. The students participated in hands-on experiments in Jo Hecker's Science Show and explored the question “What is just?”  in a lecture by Prof. Dr. Edelhoff. They learned about Bauhaus design, sustainability, and beatboxing. They discovered the manifold connections between German and STE(A)M and, last but not least, had fun in learning!


“A World of Learning” was a joint event by Wunderbar Together and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The German Digital Kinderuniversity („Kinderuni“) is a free educational project for children by the Goethe-Institut.
