Neues Thema bei den Camps: Klimawandel

Wir sind in den allerletzten Vorbereitungen für die anstehende Campphase, die im März beginnt. Neben unseren bewährten Wissenschaftsthemen Robotik und Zellbiologie haben wir neu auch das Thema Klimawandel in unser Programm aufgenommen. Der weltweit renommierte Forscher Prof. Thomas Stocker von der Universität Bern und sein Teammitglied Dr. Aurich Jeltsch-Thömmes werden eine Campwoche im Mai mit diesem hochaktuellen Thema gestalten. Wir freuen uns sehr.

Nachfolgeprogramm 2024 bei Novartis 

Am 31. Januar 2024 ist das Nachfolgeprogramm Naturwissenschaft «Schullabor Novartis» gestartet. Neu ist das Schullabor auf dem Hauptcampus untergebracht und die bewährte Leitung von Dr. Anja Krättli garantiert wiederum eine hohe Qualität der Wissensvermittlung. 
Aufgrund der sagenhaften Zusagequote von fast 100 % haben wir die Schüler und Schülerinnen in zwei Gruppen aufgeteilt (im Bild die erste der beiden Gruppen). Und: Wir haben eine erfreuliche Mädchenquote von 80 %! 

FOUNDATION

Innovative approaches that engage the heart, the mind, and the body

We open new pathways to knowledge and support underprivileged children. Since August 2019, the Pestalozzi School Camps Foundation has enabled new forms of teaching and learning that have received very favourable reviews – from both experts and students.

 

CURRICULUM

Rediscovering science and culture 

Our curriculum complements standard school subjects with hands-on journeys into the worlds of science, cutting-edge technology, classical art, and culture. Our real-world scientists and artists introduce our young learners to the fascinating aspects of these worlds.

PROGRAMMES

Capturing the imagination and discovering talent 

Capturing the imagination of children is essential to their learning success. This applies especially to underprivileged children. That’s why our Pestalozzi school camps and follow-up programmes make use of inspirational methods and innovative forms of conveying knowledge.

Our follow-up programmes

Children often possess hidden talents. This is especially true in the case of underprivileged children. To protect and reinforce these talents, we offer our students special follow-up programmes.

PEOPLE

Learning with the best 

When our engaging professional dancers, distinguished scientists, and renowned experts in robotics step in front of the class, they’re met with a kind of contagious curiosity. That’s because they’re not only famous. They also know how to engender and amplify curiosity.
