a mobile solution
The Mobile Newton Room demonstrates the Newton Concept in a unique and innovative way, by inviting students from all over the world to visit the high quality and inspiring STEM educational environment of Newton!
FIRST Scandinavia has developed a way to expand its successful Newton Concept to new regions which don’t yet benefit from permanent Newton Rooms. A key component of the Newton expansion is our innovative container solution; the Mobile Newton Room.
This portable turn-key solution has the ability to create a temporary Newton Room anywhere in the world.
The Mobile Newton Room is made up of two expandable containers specially designed to fit on a ship, train, or truck. Needing only a power and water source, they can be set up anywhere in the world for any length of time.
Each container expands to 35m2, meaning that each Mobile Newton Room provides 70m2 of high-quality and inspiring STEM education space.
The goal of the Mobile Newton Room is to demonstrate the Newton Concept: an exciting and quality-assured method of STEM education to communities around the world. Local teachers are trained in the Newton modules, and the education takes place in the local language. Students can learn a variety of interesting topics such as mathematics, coding, energy, and aviation.
FIRST Scandinavia works closely with schools, government authorities, and officials to ensure that the program is adapted to each community in a way that will maximize impact and sustainability.
