There is a lot of pressure on our education and our labor market. Due to ever faster changes in technology and in the world, content renewal in our education is essential to give children the best education for the future.


In order to prepare pupils and students for this, practice outside the classroom is just as important as learning at school. The characteristic Brainport aspects in the field of high-tech development and intensive cooperation allow for more variation in the field of learning.

Why collaborate with companies?

Our society is increasingly influenced by technology. It is important to bring the worlds of business and education closer together. Together they can help children discover their talents from an early age. This is where the foundations are laid for interest and choice of study. Planting a seed in the field of technology is important in this respect. Even if a child does not choose a technical study. Technology is everywhere and transcends the disciplines. Whatever you do later, technology is part of it. Technology helps to create solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow. Businesses and education need each other to do this.

What does Brainport Development do for Young people and Technology?

It will often take about 4 to 8 hours a week. When allowing employees in your company to work as a hybrid tech teacher, you give them the opportunity to accept a new challenge and to gain experience in the field of education. This way, your company is directly contributing to the improvement of education in the region.

Getting acquainted with practical and directly applicable (teaching) ideas and materials, surprising workshops and an inspiring keynote are the ingredients that guarantee a vibrant and interactive afternoon.
