“Connect with technology” - Stromnetz Berlin continues to support projects in the Yellow Villa
Donation of 9,900 EUR promotes the talents of tomorrow
“Nature and Technology” and “Nature and Craft” – these were the work topics from the project days of the past week in the Yellow Villa, where children learned and worked with creativity, teamwork and lots of fun. Students of a year 6 primary school class in Berlin-Mitte embarked on the adventure into the world of technology, which Stromnetz Berlin GmbH has now supported for the ninth time. The format is intended to encourage children to use technology in an entertaining way.
In order to ensure that work on technical topics can continue to be offered free of charge at the creativity and education centre in Berlin-Kreuzberg, Stromnetz Berlin presented the Yellow Villa with a donation cheque for EUR 9,900 at the end of the project week. Thomas Schäfer, Chairman of the Management Board of Stromnetz Berlin, comments: "Getting kids and young adults interested in technology is more important than ever. There is a major need for technologically-minded young talent. The Yellow Villa provides valuable, creative and forward-looking opportunities for the next generation of technicians – and we're delighted to support that in a sustained way. For example, we have just decided to make a donation to the Yellow Villa for the same amount next year."
Michael Kunsmann from the Yellow Villa adds: "The two workshops 'Nature and Technology' and 'Nature and Craft' from the last project week have produced great results. In a world that's changing so quickly and becoming increasingly digital, it is all the more important to prepare everyone for the professional challenges to come. Thanks to the support of Stromnetz Berlin and others, the Yellow Villa is making a strong commitment to conveying STEM-related topics in its educational work. During the project week, these children become the inventors of new technical solutions – and they may end up becoming the engineers of tomorrow."
