What we do and why
The common aim of the members of the non-profit organization HANDS on TECHNOLOGY is to inspire young people early for science and technology and take away their fear of contact with complex technology. They should learn to tackle challenges creatively with fantasy and build a positive attitude to science and technology with team spirit.
We organize various international educational programs to help young people to get access to scientific subjects and to motivate them in a early phase of their educational lives to become future engineers or IT professionals:
The STEM programs FIRST LEGO League with the divisions Explore and Challenge and the RoboCup Junior combine the fun and excitement of a sports event with the tricky challenge to build design and programm a robot out of the LEGO Mindstorms system.
Children and young people have the opportunity to use these challenging robot competitions and gain valuable practical experience in working with complex technologies, they can improve their problem solving abilities and all that with a lot of fun and creativity in their peer group!
