How do you apply for a cooperation?
There is no standardized application process. We are open for your ideas and would like to sit down
What are the costs of a cooperation with the Ada-Lovelace-Projekt?
All events that we offer are free for the participants. The ALP is financed through the Ministerium für Familie, Frauen, Jugend, Integration und Verfassungsschutz and the Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Weiterbildung und Kultur as well as the Europäischen Sozialfonds.
What is the duration of a cooperation?
The duration is individually agreed upon between the project leader and the school.
Generally, our cooperations with schools are in the form of after school activities that are designed for an entire or half a school year. But we are also interested in shorter or one time cooperation, e.g. trial days in companies, job fairs, project days or other special events.
Who is leading these events?
The workshops or after school activities are planned and supervised by our mentors. Mentors are trained female students or trainees from the STEM field who are very engaged. They give the students an understanding of the STEM subjects and guide them in their educational and professional orientation phase. It’s our goal to show the girls professional perspectives and widen their spectrum of careers, especially in the STEM field.
Is there fixed selection of activities or can I suggest topics?
There is a range of possible workshops that mentors have been trained for. Additionally, we welcome suggestions for new workshops. If the suggested topics are compatible with the mentors’ competencies we can offer new workshops.
How many activities can I offer at my school?
One workshop with any number of dates can be offered per school.
Are there any limitations for participating, e.g. a minimum age?
Workshops are designed for students from the 5th grade up. Which grades are supposed to participate can be agreed upon individually.
How do I benefit from a cooperation with the Ada-Lovelace-Projekt?
You contribute to the equal support of your female students in the field of science and technology in an early phase of their school career.
