MPDV Promoting Young Talents

IT and Smart Factory for school kids

Kids, teenagers, and young adults are the users of tomorrow. We want to spark interest in IT topics today so that they can play an active role in shaping the digital transformation in the future. To achieve this, we have developed innovative concepts that provide a playful introduction to the digital world.

  • What opportunities does digitalization offer?
  • What is programming?
  • What role does IT play in manufacturing?
  • What is the meaning of the term Smart Factory?

These questions take center stage in our MPDV@School programs: With the help of new and playful programs, school kids gain their first insights into current IT topics at an early stage.

Honoring the commitment

MPDV's outstanding commitment to promoting young talents was recognized in the 2022 competition "Das hat Potenzial!" (EN: Providing opportunity!), which is a country-wide network called SCHULEWIRTSCHAFT (school and business). MPDV came first in the "SCHULEWIRTSCHAFT-Starter" category. Pascal Göltl, who organizes the MPDV educational program and coordinates the MPDV@School area, collected the award in Berlin.

The jury recognized MPDV's commitment as follows: "The digital range of educational and career opportunities for young people is growing all the time. Young people have to find out for themselves which career path is the right one for them and the best way to do it is to gain practical experience. That is why we need greater cooperation between schools and business. We are especially delighted to see so many award winners who are doing a fantastic job in this field. This gives us hope and optimism for the future."

In December 2023, the educational project "Smart Factory@School – Azubis und Studierende schlüpfen in die Trainerrolle" received the "Industry 4.0 Talents" award. The project uses trainees and students as trainers for children and young people. The award recognizes MPDV's long-standing contribution to promoting young talent and confirms its role as a pioneer in this field.
