    The STEM event MINT-Tag at Jacobs University was full of aha-experiences, impulses, inspiration and much more. Entertainment was not neglected either: at the end, the students tested their knowledge in the form of a quiz. Jacobs University took part in the 2nd MINT-Tag in Bremen with four workshops, this time digitally.

    "As a university with a strong focus on teaching and research in the natural and technical sciences, it is particularly important to us to promote talents in these areas. The MINT-Tag provides important impulses to attract young talents to science," said Professor Thomas Auf der Heyde, Provost at Jacobs University.

    MINT is the German equivalent to STEM. The abbreviation stands for the subjects mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology. "The future of space travel, the future of digitization, the future of climate" were the topics aiming to inspire participants to take up STEM subjects. Jan Lorenz, who dealt with the mathematics of elections in his workshop, succeeded in doing so as well as Andreas Martin Lisewski, who explained how networks of private computers and smartphones are searching for intelligent life in space.

    The commitment of the students of Jacobs University was also impressive. How does a website work and which technologies are developing the Internet further? These were topics that Muhammad Dorrabb Khan Niazi and Nurgun Rafizade addressed in their workshops with great enthusiasm.

    Good to know: many of the MINT-Tag offerings were documented and can be accessed permanently by teachers for their lessons. Free of charge, of course.
