British Council School Slam – win 500 €!
If you are interested in the School Slam competition, you should send me an e-mail today. This is how it works: Small groups of students are asked to make a short MINT film, no more than 3 minutes long. The last day to sign up for the competition is October 1, 2018. The finished movies have to be turned in to MINT-EC by November 30.
These are last year’s winners – if they could do it, so can you!

The MINT-EC Certificate
Upon passing the Abitur, students may be awarded the MINT-EC Certificate if they can prove that they were involved in MINT-related subjects throughout their schooling and showed extraordinary involvement in MINT subjects outside of the classroom.
Application and Forms:
What do you have to do to be awarded the certificate? From grade 5 to 12 you will have to document all of your MINT activities (e. g. SchüEx, NWP, Naturforscher-AG, Air Program, competitions etc. ...). How do you do this? Your MINT Teacher or your MINT Coordinator will give you a small booklet so you can keep track of all your MINT activities.
When you enter 12th grade, you can apply for the MINT-EC Certificate by turning in the following documents by April 1st of your final year to your MINT Coordinator (please include your proof of participation):

Students who are interested in MINT subjects and activities can apply to participate in a MINT-EC Camp in Germany. The camps generally take place during a school semester. If you are interested in learning more or in participating, please contact you MINT Coordinator at the GISW.
