Where?

MINTKiDS - DAS Vorlesenetzwerk

The volunteer initiative of STEM reading mentors aims to combine and strengthen the topics of reading, reading aloud while having fun, and STEM learning. Children at daycare and elementary school age read aloud exciting MINT stories such as "What happens during a volcanic eruption?" or "Why do the leaves change color in autumn?" to become little researchers.

The MINTKiDS start in Bonn to gain experience here and to learn. The concept can be extended to other cities as desired.
