The labourmarket in the Dutch/German EUREGIO border region shows a shortage of skilled manpower in the field of scientific and technical professions. The project “MINT LAB auf Schlössern / in kastelen” promotes the interest of pupils for these professions by actively contrasting/combining history and high-tech/culture and science. Groups of 10 students of secondary schools of both countries aged approx. 12-16 accompanied by teachers take part in a joint project day at a German or Dutch historical sight (castle, palace, monastery or industrial heritage). The sight serves as an extracurricular place of learning where the binational teams work on modules in the fields of mathematics, informatics, natural science and technics (MINT).
The participants are coached by a Dutch-German team with both professional and didactical experience. The team also supports the students’ language acquisition and stimulates the development of their cross border capabilities. The obligatory guided tours through the respective sight broaden the historico-cultural knowledge and comprehension of every participant.
The regular participation of German and Dutch schools in the MINT-project days as well as the involvement of companies and universities and polytechnics in the events aim at the establishment of a sustainable border crossing network of teaching and economy.
