Engineering Lab is a national project which develops, tests and implements learning programs in primary schools. With focus on developing the students' ability to solve practical problems, the project supports the use of new technologies in teaching.
There is a need to strengthen students' interest in technical and practical educations in Denmark. New ways of teaching and innovative technologies continously place greater demands on the students' ability to solve practical problems.
At the same time, 'the open school' increases the need to strengthen and qualify collaboration between schools and business communities.
The concept 'engineering' means processes where technological solutions are developed in order to remedy a practical problem or need in society.
Schools that participate in Engineering Lab can expect to be at the forefront of development when it comes to motivating students to choose a technically oriented education.
NATIONAL RESOURCE CENTER
In Horsens, a national resource center is established, which becomes a hotspot and gathering point for new research, innovative technologies, constructive knowledge sharing and practical workshops.
From here, the involved schools can gain inspiration, coordination and support in connection with the local activities. At the same time, there will be a possibility for borrowing equipment and materials from here.
