Received funding of the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung!
18|12|2020 – We are happy to announce that the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung (MDM) has confirmed their will for funding of a first story development in the Heartucate multimedia format. Together with Nico Nowarra from Gamebook (dramaturgical advisor) and a representative of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar Research (scientific support) we will develop a first story in an interdisciplinary Writer’s Room (Alice von Gwinner as head author, Robert Schröder for the visual concept, Simeon Conzendorf for the interactive concept, Franziska Weser for format development) from January to March next year, that offers interactive opportunities to find your way around the Arctic, to learn about the complex of topics and the climate and to complete tasks together. Starting from this basis, we will build a bridge to the educational institutions and, in addition to the EDU experience with curriculum content, also design the teacher training.
We are very excited about this development and will keep you updated! So stay tuned!
Award Ceremony Sächsischer Mitmachfonds
27|09|2020 – On September 27, 2020, the award ceremony of the Saxon participation fund competition took place on the grounds of Dresden Airport. As part of the Saxon hands-on fund, the Free State of Saxony was looking for ideas that would positively shape the structural change in the lignite regions of Lusatia and Central Germany. Heartucate was selected as one of ten winners in the Central Germany region in the start-up category. The certificate was presented personally by the Saxon Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer during the festive event.
Press Conference / Universitätsschule Dresden
13|08|2020 – Together with our fellow Samsung Solve for tomorrow winner teams Grapes and hyperspecs the Heartucate team has been invited by the city of Dresden and Samsung to spend two days full of workshops and intensive coaching in Dresden. Special highlight has been the press conference in front of the regional Saxonian press on August 13th and the visit of the Universitätsschule Dresden, that offers great options for cooperational actions with Heartucate. The Universitätsschule Dresden is a school experiment running for 15 years, in which children choose projects instead of lessons and work together in mixed groups. They work according to their own speed and interests and we are very happy to see where a cooperation with the Universitätsschule can lead us to!
