With the motto “zufälliggenial?” (“Accidentally brilliant?”), MIRMI together with Franka Emika and the Robokind Foundation hosted for the third time the Jugend Forscht competition on 22. and 23. Feb in Munich West. The last two editions of the event have taken place in online format to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The public was able to visit the projects’ digital booths on the platform Veertly. Our goal is to get young people interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and to promote talented individuals. The Jugend Forscht jury was made up of a large number of experts from the STEM sciences. The social commitment comes not only from companies, schools and research centers, but also from individuals such as former award winners and retired professionals.
In the 57th round of the Jugend forscht/Schüler experimentieren competition, we called on young people in Munich West to research and experiment, to tinker and invent – and to give chance space under the motto “Accidentally brilliant?”. By organizing this regional competition, we offer our participants the right forum for presenting their projects. In this way, the young researchers experience the appropriate appreciation for their research work and experience that they make a difference with their own ideas.
