The Kreisgymnasium Riedlingen was supported by the BLANK Foundation in the purchase of a milling machine.
The students thus have the opportunity to gain insights into later fields of work of engineers and technicians at an early stage and to acquire basic knowledge in these areas.
Kolping Education Center
The Kolping Education Center Riedlingen is happy about new microscopes including an ocular camera, permanent samples and tablets for biology lessons.
"With this new technology topics can be taught in a clear and interesting way. This makes the lessons exciting and varied," explains Juliane Blank from the Foundation Committee.
The DHBW student of FEINGUSS BLANK GmbH has already been able to benefit from the offer of the BLANK Foundation. She received support for a semester abroad in South Africa.
The BLANK-Foundation supported the Joseph-Christian-Gemeinschaftsschule in the purchase of logic modules and power supply devices. These modules are often installed in control boxes. They are very close to reality and thus help the students to simulate electrical circuits.
