In these days mathematics, science and technology education in Germany is in a phase of intense reform. Initiated by the results of PISA 2000 and some further national and international studies, many initiatives started in Germany for making learning in the STEM subjects more efficient and motivating.

A lot of projects were launched to accompany and support the implementation of the new standards.
