ENT3R is a national programme in which students from STEM higher education provide homework support to pupils in secondary education (age 14-19). The STEM students meet the pupils weekly to solve real-world tasks and homework at the local university campus and act as role models and mentors. ENT3R is a national programme that is offered completely free to pupils in secondary education. 

 

In response to the COVID-19 measures implemented by the Norwegian government, the National Centre for Science Recruitment has developed ENT3R Digital, a completely digital incarnation of the ENT3R programme. In ENT3R Digital all pupils meet their mentors in a digital classroom from 16.00-20.00h each school day. Pupils can submit their questions via chat or talk to their mentors directly via webcam. Mentors use a digital drawing board to help students solve their homework assignments. More information can be found on the programme webpage (see link above). Video's of the ENT3R programme and example sessions (Norwegian only) are available via the website.
