awardee 2023 - Alfred Flint, University of Rostock

Professor Alfred Flint is considered one of the most active chemistry teachers in Germany. His "Chemistry for Life" project is based on structured and systematic chemical education in which everyday materials play a central role. Substances such as citric acid, pipe cleaners and oxygen bleach are used in the classroom, allowing students to relate directly to their everyday lives. This practical approach motivates the students and leads to sustainable learning.
