Walter Stein in the Hall of Fame

Walter Stein

Walter Stein began supporting gifted and interested students with research projects at St. Michael-Gymnasium on 5th November 1985. From 1986 until his retirement in 2015 he guided 169 of the 241 projects of St. Michael-Gymnasium participating in the student research competition "Jugend forscht". He supervised 73 of the 83 projects that qualified for the state level competition and 16 of the 19 works, that qualified for the national level competition including all 3 national champions. His major contributions to student research and beyond (e.g. co-founding the contest "Jugend forscht" on the Iberian Peninsula) were recognized with the national Teacher of the Year Award 2001, ThyssenKrupp's Idea Generator Award 2006 and the Helmholtz Association's Teacher Award 2006. In 2008, his students won the Award of the European Physical Society for their project "Nanotechnology and School" at the international festival "Science on Stage". Walter Stein's contributions were recognized with a Knight's Cross (Verdienstkreuz am Bande) awarded by the German President Joachim Gauck at Bellevue Palace in 2013.
