For the next two weeks our CRC goes to school. In five secondary schools in Karlsruhe we help children understanding math and solving math problems. We aim to close the learning gaps which appeared due to interrupted teaching during the Corona lockdown. 40 CRC members volunteer as substitute teachers in this project.
