Reducing language barriers and promoting self-confidence

In collaboration with MexLab Experiminte and Q.UNI our group members: Milena Merkel, Ramon Droop, Elena Bekker, Valeriia Ahlborn, and also former alumni Alvaro Barosso and Jesco Schönfelder participate in a volunteering project Mint4All. They are doing simple experiments with children from Ukraine and helping them to feel welcomed in Germany, to step over the language barriers, and to turn away from the terrible reality. We are still looking for volunteers, so let us know if you would like to join too at
