Support for technical education is one of our priorities within the #SKODAAUTOhelps social responsibility strategy. We cooperate with dozens of schools at all levels of education and implement projects that develop the motivation of pupils and students for further education across technical fields.

YOUNG DESIGNERS

The Young Designers art competition is intended for primary school pupils and has been running for 7 years. Every year there is also a ceremonial announcement, during which the winners have the opportunity to spend an unforgettable day. Children will learn more about traffic safety, visit ŠKODA AUTO Vocational school, where they will try out virtual reality, robotics and the ŠKODA Motorsport tyre time trial. The greatest experience, however, is usually a design workshop, a meeting with ŠKODA Design representatives and the joint creation of designs.

EDU.LAB

powered by ŠKODA AUTO

EDU.LAB project presents the most modern technologies in an entertaining way to pupils in the 8th and 9th grades of primary schools. The educational concept of the mobile laboratory includes both demonstrations of advanced technologies and interactive exhibits, where participants can try out the top elements for themselves. The project aims to introduce students to modern technology and introduce them to the possibilities of technical education. Together with its partners, the carmaker wants to motivate students interested in this area to choose a suitable technical high school.

SCIENCE HAS FUTURE

We support not only students, but also teachers of technical disciplines, principals and career counselors of primary schools. The aim of the Science has Future project is their further development, education and motivation to learn science and technology with interest, using a research approach. We have been implementing the educational program for several years in a row and in the long run we are fighting the negative trend of declining interest in science and technology among young people.

COLLABORATION WITH SCHOOLS

We also support secondary vocational schools and work intensively with universities in all three regions where ŠKODA AUTO is active. We are also a partner of the iQLANDIA science center in Liberec, which popularizes research and technical and natural sciences among young people in an entertaining way. We are active in nationwide discussions and projects related to the concept of the dual education system in the Czech Republic.

VOCATIONAL SCHOOL

ŠKODA AUTO operates as its branch plant the Secondary Vocational School of Mechanical Engineering, which offers quality vocational education in the fields of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. In addition, all successful graduates will receive a job offer.

UNIVERSITY

In 2000 ŠKODA AUTO founded the ŠKODA AUTO University, that so far remains the only university in the Czech Republic established by a large multinational company.
