Rädda Ägget (Save the Egg)

In the beginning of November every year, Chalmers holds a competition for students in the 5th grade of primary school – called Rädda Ägget (Save the Egg). The challenge is to create the best construction to save an egg that will fall from 15 meters above the ground, without breaking the egg. The competition is held at Chalmers Campus Johanneberg and divided into two parts. First, the participants test the construction in MC2 building and then the second part they will test different technical and scientific experiments in Betonghallen. Every year, we are looking for students who like to inspire children in natural science, engineering and mathematics through experiments and workshops.

DigiLab – Digital workshop for school students

During Vetenskapfestivalen (The Science Festival) in April, Chalmers arranges a DigiLab - a digital workshop for school students within the age of 10-12 years old in Lindholmen. The goal is to stimulate interest for engineering. Students will get the chance to solve assignments and build an application with the help of electronics, censors and simple programming.

We are looking for students who will lead and develop DigiLab together with us. It is considered a merit if you have skills in simple electronic components, such as Arduino, Raspberry PI, Scratch, MakeyMakey, LittleBits, etc. However, it is not strict to have these competencies.

Läxhjälpen (Helping school assignments at Chalmers Library in Johanneberg)

We offer school assignments and homework assistance for high school students every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 17.15 – 19.15 at the main library in Chalmers Campus Johanneberg. We are regularly looking for students who enjoy the roll of being a tutor and want to help high school students with their school assignments.

Pluggstöd (Study Support)

As a part of Chalmers Pluggstöd, you will help 7th to 9th grade students with their homework or assignments within different topics. The project is held with a cooperation with schools and companies. The assistance is held in their venue after school time. The goal with the project is to introduce an international environment and it is the reason why we would like to have both Swedish and international students to work together in this project.
