Education in STEM subjects plays a special role in Jena. In 2016, the Jena City Council decided on a concept for increasing education in the areas of mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology. The Witelo cooperation association connects urban providers of STEM education. Like the MINT festival at the University of Jena, the association shapes Jena’s active educational work and inspires young, up-and-coming scientists to enter the broad area of natural science and computer science. In parallel to this, the format is a great example of how the various scientific institutions and businesses in Jena collaborate to promote the topic of science and raise its public profile.
