Promoting Scientific Literacy
Where does the wind come from? Why don’t ships sink? What are clouds? Children are naturally curious and explore the world around them. The aim of the “Haus der kleinen Forscher” programme is to foster this natural curiosity and to promote scientific literacy.
The Foundation offers early childhood educators and primary school teachers a professional development programme aimed at supporting inquiry-based science activities in preschool and primary education.
Constructing knowledge together
Children and educators co-construct the learning process. The educators act as “facilitators of learning” by helping children to learn things for themselves.
