HERE’S WHY – We humans have an innate urge to make findings about things. All children want to learn how to understand the world and find their bearings within it. The urge to research begins at birth, so to speak. The questions that our school students ask and the interests they have are varied. How often will the virus (Covid-19) be able to mutate? (Jakob, 11) Can plants talk to each other? (Mila, 11) Where does space end? (Jan, 11) This is why Wilhelm-Focke-Oberschule developed practical units of study for research, and they are inspiring enthusiasm.
HERE’S WHY – We were a “School in Colored States” for four years (2016 – 2020). The University of Bremen’s academic staff joined our teachers to develop new units of study and teach a themed learning pathway. This study focused on research in fields such as technology. The results of this enriching partnership live on today in our follow-on researcher classes – research-based learning is a big deal for us.
