The InnoTruck Makes Innovations Understandable for Young People

How does a good idea become a successful innovation? What do “innovations” really mean? And do innovations always bring progress? Answers to these and other questions can be found aboard the InnoTruck of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The double-decker lorry tours year-round throughout the Federal Republic of Germany. The vehicle’s interior understandably illustrates the role that innovations play in our daily lives. The initiative was conceived for all interested citizens, especially for young people, their parents and teachers.

Visitors are invited to learn about numerous thematic fields and associated professions: the spectrum ranges from the digital society through sustainable commerce to healthy living and intelligent mobility. Experts are on board to assist visitors who would like to discuss themes in greater depth. But the InnoTruck isn’t only for passive spectators, it also welcomes active participation: various experiments invite young people to play the role of researchers and experience technical progress firsthand.

Curious? The InnoTruck will visit the following cities in November: Bonn, Königstein im Taunus, Oberursel, Weinheim, Karlsruhe, Pliezhausen and Stuttgart.
