Siemens WLL recently provided the Deutsche Schule Doha with two ‘Discovery Boxes’ to assist the school’s students in setting up scientific experiments about energy, electricity and environment and health.
Siemens provide the kits to schools worldwide. The company has donated some 2,000 such kits to schools over the past four years, offering a basic introduction to science and technology for the students as well as teaching advice to the teachers.
Watching as the children explored the kits were Siemens WLL CEO, Wolfgang Muth and counsellor and deputy head of mission for the German embassy, Matthias Ohnemueller.
They were joined by the school’s headmaster Michael Bauer, and Kindergarten teacher, Dorit Gekle, who said: “This is a fantastic way to educate children through play. They are being exposed to the sometimes daunting subject of science while having fun.”
“We are proud and honoured to support the efforts of teachers in awakening the interest of young students in science and technology,” said Muth, adding: “It is important that we encourage scientific study and ensure that younger generations are equipped with the necessary skills in order for our societies to continue to develop.”
