MINT - Die Stars von Morgen
Professional orientation in the STEM subjects
The project MINT - Die Stars von Morgen (i.e. "STEM - The stars of tomorrow") helps pupils in the 8th to 10th grade (14 years and older) with career orientation.
The project starts several times a year. Each project run consists of different modules from different subject areas of the STEM world. The respective module provides an overview of specific occupational groups. The face-to-face sessions consist of experiments at the stations of the EXPERIMINTA ScienceCenter as well as the illustration of the functionality of certain systems and machines in workshop form. The contents are practice-oriented and the project has an "event character".
In addition, the pupils have the opportunity to get in contact with trainees from STEM professions and they get an overview of career options from representatives of the Federal Employment Agency.
Participation is free of charge, but the participating teenagers should attend every event.

Impressions from the project
The project is part of a project initiated by the Hessian Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transportation and Housing, which was launched in addition to EXPERIMINTA in Frankfurt at six other Hessian locations, including Marburg (Chemikum), Gießen (Mathematikum) and Schotten (Vulkaneum). It is financed with support from the European Social Fund and the Federal Employment Agency. The aim is to address the threatened shortage of skilled workers in scientific and technical occupations in a constructive and sustainable manner using existing facilities.
Funded by the Hessian Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transport and Housing and the European Union - European Social Fund as well as by the Regional Directorate Hesse of the Federal Employment Agency.
