COLLABORATION WITH BOEING
The Boeing Company has been a strategic partner of FIRST Scandinavia on the Newton concept since 2013.
Together with Boeing
, FIRST Scandinavia will establish Newton Rooms in several countries.
The investment will fund several Newton Room concepts to deliver STEM education to primary and secondary school students in Europe:
A permanent classroom used to teach students aviation-related STEM concepts, reinforced with full-motion flight simulators manufactured in Spain.
A state-of-the-art permanent classroom focused on experiential learning. Themes can include space, biofuels, and advanced materials and manufacturing.
A portable package of flight simulator panels and classroom materials used to create a temporary Newton Room in virtually any suitable existing space.
An innovative classroom solution, made of two expandable containers designed to fit on a ship, train or truck. The classroom can be set up anywhere in the world, providing 70m2 of high quality and inspiring STEM educational space.
Boeing’s investment also funded the expansion of the Newton team, leading to the establishment of our Newton Europe office, based in Berlin.
From the German capital, our team is poised to spread the Newton Concept across Europe, giving students a unique and exciting opportunity to get inspired by STEM topics.
