IAV - In cooperation with elementary schools
This fall IAV was approached by The Federation of Icelandic Industries because of the project the enhancement of fact and technology in primary schools in the country. The projects name is GEERT and stands for elementary education increased in science and technology.
The project consists of cooperation between the industry and elementary schools and aims to increase student interest in science and technology. The business environment is a part of the project by introducing to the students the various jobs and what they involve.
IAV responded naturally well to the call and the two employees who have both craft and collage education in industrial technology visited elementary schools to present their work for students in 8-10th grade. The students who are now faced with choosing a further education after elementary school should have greater awareness of what the job of a craftsman and technicians is all about.
