Johannes-Kepler-Gymnasium Weil der Stadt
Company description
The Johannes-Kepler-Gymnasium is a German secondary school with almost 650 pupils, distributed on a total of 18 to 20 classes.
As a general secondary school, it leads all pupils to a wide range of university departments in eight years of schooling.  The school supports the scientific education and STEM subjects with robotics and medical informatics. We also use NAO robots to develop digital and social skills.
Our Robotics-Teams have taken part in lots of different competitions (Robocup German Open, NAO Challenge). There have also been different social projects. Our school runs four drama groups, one in English. Being equipped with an observatory, we also offer astronomy and different activites linked to it. The JKG is connected with different schools in order to prepare A-level exams (Abitur).
Furthermore, the school is very open to innovation and technology. We are in touch with different companies where we send our students for work experience. We own five Anycubic-I3-Mega 3D printers, which are fully administered by our students.

Company Description Description of the initiative

Initiative description
In this project, partners from six European countries are working together. They create manuals and learning scenarios in order to introduce 3D printing and modern technologies in their schools. The project allows the students to produce their own product and prepares them for industry 4.0. About a thousand students will learn how to design 3D printed prosthesis, interactive devices and software - like in the real world.

- Manual for 3D printing + tested learning scenarios - Manual for IoT + tested learning scenarios - Manual for fabrication of product for interactional purposes + tested learning scenarios

Good practice Best practice

So far: Training of all partners at Create It Real (Denmark), Training at Scuola di Robotica (Italy), creation of learning scenarios individually in each country, e.g. for Germany: learning scenario for PLA, a 3D-printing-material (http://www.jkgweil.de/fileadmin/user_upload/Projekte/Erasmus_/WM_learningScenario_ChemistryOfPLA.pdf)
