Technology Rally

Project description

Career orientation and support in the search for a suitable training possibilities are very important for all school students. The Technology Rally of the The Educational Association of the Bavarian Economy involves a series tasks relating to technology and science, with the aim of making science and technology more accessible to children.

At over 25 different stations, the school pupils are able to handle materials and tools and gain confidence in their own technical abilities. On June 13, 2016, enthusiasm for issues relating to science and technology as well as for careers in these areas was generated at a high school in Landsberg (Dominikus-Zimmermann-Gymnasium).

The Rallies are offered at all types of German high school from the 5th class. The stations are selected according to age and target group. The Rally lasts for the duration of two school lessons and takes place with a maximum of 30 pupils.

In order to take part in educational initiatives, school students often have to pay for material or travel costs which cannot always be fully financed by the schools. The Frank Hirschvogel Foundation is pleased to offer financial support here, insofar as the costs involved are for supporting the content of the curriculum.

Field reports

2016
To raise interest in science and technology among school pupils, a Technology Rally took place on June 13-14 for pupils from the 5th grade of a high school in Landsberg (Dominikus-Zimmermann Gymnasium).
Besides using fretsaws, soldering irons, hammers and screws, the children were also able to bend wire, make leather armbands, design door signs, saw out animal figures, play technology memory, connect cables and cut copper tubes.
A particularly great feature of the event was that the pupils were able to decide themselves which stations they wished to work at during the 90 minutes. The instructors Corinna Reiner and Michael StoƟ were available to give advice and assistance as well as to provide the pupils with an insight into the requirements and opportunities of a career in the STEM area.
