Laatzen (dpa) – After a Corona break, IdeasExpo wants thousands of young people to get excited about scientific professions and live technology in the summer.

A road show throughout Germany, which will take place mainly in schools, but also in markets, will be a preview of the youth event. Among other things, girls and boys can program robots and find a way through a mirror maze with the help of a laser.

Fairground open from July 2 to 10

Lower Saxony’s Prime Minister Stephan Weil now attended the inaugural event at a school in Laatzen near Hannover. “The Ideas Expo is always a highlight for the youth of Lower Saxony – this year the enthusiasm should be particularly great,” said the SPD politician.

“For too long, the corona pandemic has made direct impressions of the world of work difficult.” Last year there was only a digital version of the youth fair, this year visitors can return to the fairgrounds from July 2 to 10.

Around 360,000 young people participated in the last live event of 2019. IdeasExpo was founded in 2007 as a joint initiative of politics and business to introduce young people to MINT subjects (mathematics, computing, natural sciences and technology).

Roadshow visits 180 locations

“IdeenExpo is a successful project in Lower Saxony, a beacon with a radiance that has long since reached far beyond Lower Saxony,” said Volker Schmidt, Chairman of the Board of Directors of IdeasExpo GmbH.

The roadshow is scheduled to stop at 180 locations over the next three and a half months, including Berlin and Munich, for example, but also smaller cities like Hofgeismar in Hesse and Langelsheim in Saxony-Anhalt.
