GUC Berlin participated in “Reinickendorf Forscht & experiment –MINT-Messe” event that was held in Berlin on the 30th of January 2019 along with 17 different schools, 4 other colleges, and 6 initiatives and companies. It is the 5th year in a row where GUC Berlin cooperates with Frau Katrin Schultze-Berndt, district of Reinickendorf Education Councilor, to participate in this important event that shows GUC Berlin’s dedication to contributing to the community of Reinickendorf district and Berlin and portray a positive image of Egyptians abroad especially by bonding with younger generations.
The MINT Messe aims primarily at simplifying science programs for children in schools aging 6-14 years old. The event promotes organizations and students to showcase experiments that promote Mathematics, Informatics, Natural Sciences and Technology (abbreviated MINT).
GUCians from the faculty of Media Engineering and Technology along with the teaching assistants El Hassan Bilal and Moustafa Talaat, presented this year: 2-D Code Game, Virtual Reality Games from „Social Good Hackathon“ and the Applied Arts Graphic Design Workshop in cooperation with Ernst- Litfaß-School in the Foyer of Fontanehaus. The GUC Berlin booth was located next to the Freie Universität (FU) Berlin booth.
By presenting their simplified university projects to German school students, GUC students allowed the children to use, touch and feel prototypes of fabricated technology in order to ignite their love for sciences as they brought natural sciences and math closer to school children and served as role models. German school children expressed at the booth that they look forward to joining science-related study programs and doing research. By presenting interactive games, it was also a great opportunity to attract many school students who were lining up to try these games.
