We burn for practice projects in schools

Why we exist

The success of a society depends on each individual.

Everybody has to get the opportunity to learn the skills needed in the 21st century.

 

How we support

Every teacher receives a contact person with proven project templates and an own project page, with which his project can serve as a role model. Everything for free.

 

What we promise

We help teachers design real-life projects that ensure that students are prepared for the challenges of the future by giving them the chance of participation and training of important competences.

Experience learning through practice projects, low-threshold and scalable in schools to teach values and competencies.”

Das macht Schule has been online since 2007, nationwide, non-profit, independent, founder-led and is funded by foundations, sponsoring members and donations.

We work with a small professional team of permanent employees, punctually supported by volunteering and pro bono support.

The core of our work is the effective promotion of participation in practice projects. With a 2-level enabling approach, we enable teachers to teach their students skills.
