Children in Darmstadt taught using Porsche computers

Stuttgart/Darmstadt. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany, is
supplying 200 computers and monitors in support of the "Clever Mice"
Children Discover Language education initiative. The initiative is aimed
at familiarizing four- to six-year-olds with the world of letters, numbers
and words, thus facilitating their transition into elementary school. The
computers are earmarked for 120 kindergartens in Darmstadt the first city
in which the education initiative is being rolled out. The Federal Minister
of Justice, Brigitte Zypries, lobbied hard on behalf of her Darmstadt

Software manufacturer Microsoft Deutschland, IT service provider PC-Ware
and Porsche have joined forces on the "Clever Mice" project. A learning
program, which was specially developed by the Technische University Berlin
and which enables customized language practice, has been installed on all
of the computers. This program also enables teachers to track individual
children's progress and provides targeted advice on how to help them
improve further.

"We adults are responsible for ensuring that all children receive the best
educational chances at a sufficiently early stage. Failing to do so could
mean they miss the boat and suffer a disadvantage for the rest of their
lives. Reading and writing are basic skills that open the door to a good
education. That is why Porsche is supporting the Clever Mice," said Dr.
Wendelin Wiedeking, President and CEO of Porsche AG, at the presentation of
the Darmstadt-based project in the Hedwig-Dohm-Haus day-care center.
