If you didn’t know Experimento is an international educational program on offer by the Siemens Stiftung. This program provides teachers and educators with a practical and curriculum-oriented selection of topics in the areas of energy, health, and the environment. Specific instructions, methods, and materials for experiments help to embed the program in teaching.
The Siemens Stiftung has successfully established Experimento in South Africa. Based on this success, the Challenge consists in developing a vision for local institutions that can be effective conduits for rolling out Experimento in other countries such as Nigeria and Kenya in a format that allows the program to scale efficiently and take into account local circumstances.
While working on this concrete challenge through the help of the DO School Method, you will learn crucial skills and exchange with renowned experts for education and the Siemens Stiftung.
