The games are divided into the Science Arena, Technology Arena, Engineering Arena and Mathematics Arena. From the ITWM side, the math jury is supported by Markus Rauhut, head of the image processing department at Fraunhofer ITWM. »The Fraunhofer Institute stands for interdisciplinarity in science and research. That’s exactly what the STEM Games are all about. So it only makes sense that we support this and use this valuable opportunity to find young talents,« says Rauhut.
Petra Gospodnetic, PhD student in the image processing department and already working as a mentor last year, will also be at the participants' side as a mentor this time. »The games are a unique opportunity to work together with students from different scientific fields. Their ideas are unexpected and inspiring,« says Gospodnetic.
The teams are composed of students from different faculties. In addition to the scientific and sporting competition, the program is rounded off with additional workshops, lectures and discussions as well as lots of entertainment and fun.
Far away from dry theory, the students solve problems in a creative way with the assistance of experienced mentors. This is a great opportunity, because many potential employers are looking for young talents on site. Innovation, the latest technologies and progress with a view to the future on our planet are the mutual focus.
