MINT-EC is the German National Excellence Network of Upper Secondary Schools with a distinctive profile in Mathematics, Computer Science (Informatik), Science (Naturwissenschaft) and Technology (STEM).

In total there are  325 certified schools in Germany. The International School of Bremen was awarded the MINT-EC status in 2015 and is the only International School in Germany and one of the three schools in the State of Bremen that is part of this prestigious network that is supervised by the KMK (Kultusministerkonferenz).

Our inclusion in the STEM network confirms the higher profile of science in the School and raises its profile in the community.  Being part of the network also gives students, teachers and administrators extra opportunities to apply for high profile funding programs and events.

To maintain this status, the School must provide consistently excellent teaching in all STEM areas. This is provided by a highly committed team who provide extracurricular activities that help develop the STEM profile of our students. These include support clubs for Mathematics, ECDL (European Computers Driver’s License), Coding and Science.


In order to maintain a record of the activities developed by the students, the School has created a STEM form which can be accessed using the QR code on the STEM school board or via the below link: Stem Form

This certificate is recognised by Universities and Businesses, offering a reliable classification of the students’ achievement in STEM that is independent of the School System of the country. In addition, it is an effective tool for STEM talent development, reflected by the students' choices in school and extracurricular activities.
