One thing is very clear: School is shut down. In such a situation, creating our own Internet School would have been completely out of line. This is and remains a task of the government. Neither Jacob nor the Dr. Hans Riegel Foundation want this - to the contrary! We offer physics classes to refresh the school curriculum and consolidate it using experiments and quizzes. Even though our streams and videos are very well researched, no one misses a school lesson if he or she can't watch.

From April 7-9, 2020, the YouTuber and trained teacher Jacob Beautemps aired the first two STEM Live Streams featuring physics experiments with the support of the Dr. Hans Riegel Foundation. While the use of YouTube as a learning and information resource is very widespread these days, the new aspects the STEM Live Stream brings to the table are its structure and the chance for students to test their knowledge through quizzes. The content is of particular interest to students who are unable to go to school at the moment.
The project is now heading into its next round: Jacob Beautemps will now regularly offer MINT live streams together with other YouTubers. Students can once again take part in quizzes to answer questions about experiments and possible solutions using a survey tool. After successfully completing the quiz, they receive feedback that can serve as an indication of their own level of knowledge.
Our videos do not replace physics class! Skilled teachers are doing remarkable work teaching physics in an engaging and up-to-date manner - both in the classroom as well as during the current shutdown. We consider our live streams and videos as entertaining learning videos for students and as additional tools for teachers. The content can effectively complement classes as part of the teachers' free choice of educational media. Find more offers here!
