YOUR STARTUP IN 5 WORDS
Smart – Open – Sustainable – Empowering – Innovative
Founded in 2018
Team Count 12
Our backgrounds are in Computer Science, Geoinformatics, Communication, Education and Business – but also in nature, kayaking, hiking, biking, flying, e-sports and board games. This makes us a creative, versatile and flexible bunch of people!
PROBLEM 1: How are we going to teach kids and society the most important digital skills for their future (21st century skills)?
PROBLEM 2: How can we grow a better understanding of environmental threats to empower us to change our habits and have an impact?
As a spin-off of the Institute for Geoinformatics at the University of Münster, we also see ourselves as committed to research due to our background in the scientific field. Our many years of experience in the development of geographic information systems, but also in science communication and in the areas of Citizen Science, and all of this following the Open Science and Open Innovation approach, leads to our mission statement.
The senseBox is growing towards a standard-tool for digital environmental education in schools. We are working on connections to other edtech solutions (data science apps) and application of new technologies as NB IoT.
The next steps will be international growth by reaching out to European markets.
