“Connect with technology” - Stromnetz Berlin continues to support projects in the Yellow Villa
A donation promotes the talents of tomorrow
This week's Project Days will involve sewing with light, bringing the universe to life in a nutshell and rendering sound as something visible. The broad topic of technology is linked to the areas of craftsmanship and art. A class of year 6 students from Hunsrück primary school are diving into the adventure with creativity, teamwork and lots of fun. This is being supported by Stromnetz Berlin GmbH for the tenth time. The format is intended to encourage children to use technology in an entertaining way.
Stromnetz Berlin has today presented the Yellow Villa with a cheque and is donating 9,900 euros - in the course of the Project Days and following a visit to the individual workshops - to enable the creative and educational house in Berlin-Kreuzberg to continue to offer its activities in technology at no charge. 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 huge need for young, technologically-oriented talent. The Yellow Villa provides valuable, creative and future-oriented opportunities for the next generation of technicians – and we are delighted to be supporting this over the long term."
Michael Kunsmann from the Yellow Villa adds: "Once again, the different workshops like “Sewing with light”, "Do you have sounds?!" and “The universe in a nutshell” have all been enthusiastically received by the pupils. In a world that is changing so quickly and becoming increasingly digital, it is even 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."
