Over the last couple weeks, the 10th grade and the Abitur students have visited the temporary exhibit: “1917. Revolution. Russia and Europe” in the German History Museum (DHM). Students were led on guided tours through the causes and course of the revolution, as well being provided a glimpse into its impact on Russia and Europe.
Last Thursday, December 7th, students of the IT class Grade 9 and 10 had the opportunity to visit HERE Technologies, a big IT Global Company with about 1000 employees only in Berlin and sites in USA, India, Israel, etc. We were kindly welcomed by Mr. Frank Janisch who is the Head of Product Development Practices at HERE technologies. The students learned about what HERE technologies is and what the company does.
As part of their ethics units dealing with democracy, patriotism and nationalism, the 10th grade organised a podium discussion around the question: “How should right-wing extremism be dealt with in a democracy?” The students invited a range of politicians, experts and activists; prepared questions; dealt with the event’s logistics and also hosted the talk.
