Award for schools in the district Oberbergischer Kreis
On initiative of the Hans Hermann Voss Foundation, from 2014 onwards, different schools from Wipperfürth and Marienheide applied for the title "MINT-friendly school" and were awarded. Some schools were awarded additionally as a "Digital school".
The initiator of the distinctions is the initiative "MINT Zukunft schaffen" (Creating a MINT future). This initiative aims to pool the many already existing individual MINT initiatives in order to give the topic of MINT a wider platform through a collective stand. An important goal of "MINT Zukunft schaffen" is to quantitatively and qualitatively improve instruction and lessons in the MINT subjects at schools and universities.
