Granted to four middle schools and one elementary school
Awards for tomorrow's developers and engineers
The foundation has been awarding academic support awards for 20 years
Stimulate the enthusiasm for the MINT subject, promote tomorrow's engineers and developers, and make them want to try new things: For this achievement, the Schaeffler FAG Foundation awarded 5 schools the 2019 Innovation Award to provide educational support. The award is divided into two categories: "Gymnasien and Realschulen" and "Grundschulen".
The Schaeffler FAG Foundation as a driving force for knowledge transfer
"The foundation is the engine of knowledge, knowledge transfer and potential development. Schaeffler AG's European Human Resources Director and Chairman of the Schaeffler FAG Foundation, Andreas Harman, explained that this is a corporate and social responsibility. Reflect. Since its establishment in 1983, the foundation has allocated more than 1 million euros in funding. Twenty years ago, in addition to university and science funding, it also launched "school funding." The foundation commended the school's science and technology projects.
This year's first prize of 2,000 euros was awarded to Armin-Knab-Gymnasium of Kissingen to organize and implement the "Metal Night". In the evening activity, elementary school students worked closely with external experts to introduce topics related to natural science, technology and foundries. The goal is to show interesting research aspects on the subject of "metals" and introduce them in a generally understandable way.
The winner of the second prize of €1,000 was the Regiomontanus Stadium in Hasfurt. The school won an award for the "Development of 3D Image" project. Based on the principles of plasma and LCD, the students designed and built a grid-like grid on which they placed light-emitting diodes in several layers. The precise control of the diode can produce a broad three-dimensional image.
This year's third place prize is 750 euros per person, which is jointly won by the Ron Arena in Bad Neustadt and the H?rstat Arena in Eich. The high school in Bad Neustadt won the award for the "Physics and Computer Science-Analysis of Linear Motion Using Microcontrollers and Sensors". Among other things, the students also programmed the car's parking assistance program to analyze linear motion.
In Hirchstadt an der Aish, students developed an automatic heating control system for a local tennis court. The effective preheating of the lobby according to the reservation plan is to continuously reduce energy consumption.

Excellent Primary School
In the "primary school" category, a prize of 1,000 euros was awarded to Dr. Pfeiffer Primary School in Schweinfurt. This school is honored for its commitment to making students excited about technology and science. For example, at the school festival last year, the topics of wind energy (fluid mechanics), mechanics (wheeled systems) and electricity (circuits) got closer and closer to them.
“In order for children and young people to become interested in technology and research at an early date, it is essential to continue to increase the innovative strength of the economy. The excellent work of the award-winning schools is crucial to this,” Andreas Hamann explained.
Due to the corona crisis, the planned celebrations this year must be cancelled.
