* Jet-Net (dutch)



  • Youth and Technology Network Netherlands
  • Joint venture between Dutch companies and pre-college schools in the Netherlands.

Jen-Net is a collaboration between companies, education and the government. Their target is to share the image of science and technology with senior general secondary education (HAVO) or pre-university education (VWO) students and interest them for a science oriented study. Jet-Net companies help schools enhance the appeal of their science curriculum by using a great variety of activities and also allow students to gain a better understanding of their future career prospects in industry and technology. Jet-Net therefore supports as well as organizes several projects and activities:

  • Teachersday: Companies provide an educational day for teachers sharing knowledge about science and technology.
  • Jen-Net Junior: Primary education and companies are connected, resulting in companies that share their knowledge about science and technology by hosting for example: guest lectures, company visits, classroom materials, competitions etc.
  • Meet the boss: debating contest with regional rounds and a national final. Students from classes in secondary education take part in a debate with 'bosses' (senior executives) from companies around several relevant issues (not necessarily related to STEM).
  • Internship-day-of-your-life: Three participants (currently in secondary education) are selected for one day of internship by Shell, Tata steel or KPN. Selected students get the change to function one day as director of this company and need to apply be sending and motivation letter to Jet-Net.
  • Girlsday: A day specially organized for girls in lower secondary education of HAVO and VWO. Girls participate in a day full technology by companies and organizations.
  • Career day: focuses on students from higher secondary education (HAVO), and aims to help students with their study choice especially for science and technology.
  • Engineer at school: An engineer visits a school and tell his or her story about their job.
  • Tube Your Future: A competition that stimulates participants to create a video of the future technology and scientific profession. (Organized by NEMO science center)
