Junior Innovation Camp
At the “Junior Innovation Camp”, Zschimmer & Schwarz employees and school children together develop an innovative solution for an existing problem or a certain issue. The camp is broken down into two phases: Various workshops give the school children important impetus to prepare for the challenge. They are supported by a Zschimmer & Schwarz expert team that provides insights into the business world, explains the background to topics and tasks and also raises critical questions. The adolescents are then asked to develop a solution for a particular task in a team effort and present their solution to the expert jury of Zschimmer & Schwarz.
The focal point of the “Junior Innovation Camp” is creative and solution-focused thinking. The school children are learning important entrepreneurial and social skills in a short period of time. At the same time, they become attracted to the topic of “chemistry”, and the first contacts with young talents are made.
The project is implemented in collaboration with the “Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft Köln JUNIOR gemeinnützige GmbH” – a non-profit company in Cologne that introduces the next generation to business practices.
