For Schools

MINT KIDZ PROJECT

Empowering Tomorrow’s Innovators with Free of Charge STEM Activities for Schools.

This initiative has been promoted by Google

Little Scientists MINT-Kidz project is a three-year initiative aimed at enhancing STEM education in partnership with public schools in Kanton Zurich.

Our mission is to support teachers in introducing STEM subjects to 1st and 2nd cycle classes. In collaboration with our dedicated partner, Google, we bring a range of STEM themes to your school to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers together.

PROJECT MINT KIDZ: the test phase starts in January 2024

The testing phase of the KINT KIDZ project is set to commence in January 2024, during which one or a few partner schools in Kanton Zurich will be provided with complimentary LEGO robotics and coding workshops for their classes.  

A skilled instructor from our team will visit your class, equipped with all the essential materials needed for engaging and educational tech activities. Collaborating with the teacher, students will have the opportunity to build, program, and learn through hands-on play.
