Source: Koerber Foundation On November 26, 2020, the fifth day of action took place in Hamburg, which was able to show with many events and a Hamburg-wide competition that MINT can inspire mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology creatively and with fun even in pandemic times.

Many offers were purely virtual due to the corona. This is also the case with the competition: The math problem on climate protection was calculated by over 300 classes with around 9,000 children and adolescents from the first grade to the upper grades and finally created a slogan. Patron Ties Rabe particularly praised the claim “Alexa – cancel my flight, I’ll take the train” of class 10a from the Johannes Brahms Gymnasium at the virtual award ceremony. How much climate-damaging CO₂ there is in a glass of cow’s milk and how much of it can be saved with a glass of oat milk was made clear by one of the many math problems in the competition, which are graded according to difficulty. A MINT day is particularly worthwhile in challenging times, says project manager Hannah Jacobmeyer from MINTforum Hamburg e. V. sure. “We didn’t just press the pause button, we also gave MINT a stage in 2020 as far as possible.” Virologist Marylyn Addo: “Was an enthusiastic MINT girl myself” In the run-up to the MINT day, the MINT forum had a meeting with the virologist Marylyn Addo from the UKE, who thinks it is very important to strengthen young MINT talents with projects such as the MINTforum and the MINT-Tag: »I was also an enthusiastic MINT girl myself and I hope that we will inspire many students can for the MINT subjects. (…) Germany is an important location for science, we want to continue to play in the premier league and for that we need a lot of new talent. «MINT day film
