CAMMP Week 2013

How does the search engine “google” work? How to build a free way exit ramp? And how does a low-cost airline determine their airfares? For the third time, the Computational and Mathematical Modeling Program (CAMMP) sought to provide answers to those kinds of questions.

CAMMP´s main objective is to make school students aware of their talents and potential as well as to develop sustainable interest in the different STEM fields. Moreover, a smooth transition from school to university should be ensured.

CAMMP took place from July 07 – 12, 2013 in a youth hostel in Voeren, Belgium, and is organized by Professor Martin Frank (MathCCES), Professor Ahmed Ismail (Molecular Simulations and Transformations), as well as Dr. Nicole Faber (AICES Graduate School).

CAMMP Part of RWTH´s Education Labs

In order to fascinate school students for STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), RWTH Aachen established the “RWTH Aachen University Education Labs” in its institutional strategy for excellent teaching and learning. The Education Labs offer varying approaches to numerous sides and applications of STEM subjects to school students from primary school to high school.
The goal is to make school students aware of their talents and potential as well as to develop sustainable interest in the different STEM fields. Moreover, a smooth transition from school to university should be ensured. In addition, the gender and diversity aspect is implemented by the attempt to interest female high school students in STEM subjects.
