Junior Engineer Academies
The goal of the “Junior Engineer Academies” sponsored by the Deutsche Telekom Stiftung foundation is to show students in 8th grade and above what it is like to work as an engineer, scientist or researcher. Partners of the Junior Engineer Academies include schools and universities as well as other regional partners from the worlds of business and science. The foundation supported 54 Junior Engineer Academies with different focal points, including renewable energy, robotics and engineering, throughout Germany at the beginning of 2014. An additional 15 academies are scheduled to be set up at the beginning of the 2014/2015 school year.
