Scientific Education

Nobody is born with a vocation, but many of us know their way in life already at a young age. Albert Einstein became fascinated by science when he, as a child, received his first compass and wondered why the needle always points in the same direction. His passion for physics and mathematics was to change our world view, and like him, countless other scientists, male and female, through their research, inventions and discoveries, have revolutionized the way how we see and deal with the world.

Science, however, does not stand still: To maintain competitiveness in the scientific/technical disciplines that will determine our future, we have to have new generations of researchers. To this end, young people need to be encouraged to pursue scientific careers and to become the science experts of the future.

Through a variety of funded projects and programs, the Ernst Schering Foundation makes an important contribution in this respect by making science classes in schools more interesting and exciting, thus fostering the dialogue between renowned researchers and talented young people that is crucial to recruiting and promoting young scientists in the long term.
