Power4School Goes Live at Voith
The practical main section of the Power4School project is planned for spring 2014. The entire class will then put its theoretical energy know-how into practice at the Voith training center. "We are delighted to see that the children are working on the subject of energy with such enthusiasm. With the facilities of the Voith training center we are offering them an environment where they can put their knowledge into practice," says Erwin Krajewski, Manager Technical Apprenticeships at Voith, who coordinated the introduction of the Power4School project within the Wissensfabrik movement.
