MOME joins the ‘Let’s Teach for Hungary’ programme with its own students under the agreement signed with the Ministry for Innovation and Technology. The initiative comprising over 1,000 mentors is designed to provide help with career choice and further education to primary school pupils aged 6-14 in underdeveloped villages and small towns.

The ‘Let’s Teach for Hungary’ programme is based on contemporary mentoring activities, and designed to support primary schoolers living in difficult conditions, as well as strengthen mutual learning and the communities. Mentors assigned to primary school pupils participating in the programme are tasked with showing the children the opportunities of the world outside their immediate environments and the great variety of occupations and futures they can choose from. The goal is to help children unlock their full potential and subsequently enter the labour market.

Under the collaboration between MOME and the Ministry for Innovation and Technology, MOME students can now join the programme as mentors to support the development of these children. Each student will mentor four to five primary schoolers, and chiefly focus on helping them successfully finish primary school, enter high school and then choose a career.

In addition to the leaders of the university, the signing was also attended by Chairman of MOME Foundation Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy, and founder of the programme and Minister of State for Economic Strategy and Regulation from the Ministry for Innovation and Technology László György.

“It is in the interest of all Hungarian universities to ensure no gifted child is lost to higher education only because they were born into more difficult circumstances. MOME’s engagement in this programme is not intended as a grand gesture, it is simply an act of fulfilling our obligation”, said President of the Foundation for Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy.

Minister of State László György welcomed Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design to the continuously growing community of the ‘Let’s Teach for Hungary’ programme. Now that MOME has joined, there are altogether 16 partner university students helping primary schoolers in villages and small towns with career orientation and enjoy great experiences. From spring 2022, 1,028 university students who turned mentors will start working with 4,040 pupils from 107 primary schools.

Starting out as a geometric model, it evolved into one of the world's most widely known spatial puzzle games. Generations have grown up twisting the sides of the Rubik's Cube, and even today, there are competitions to see who can solve it faster by arranging nine smaller cubes of the same colour on each side without taking it apart. Created by Ernő Rubik at MOME’s predecessor, the Hungarian University of Applied Arts, the Rubik's Cube is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2024, while its designer is also celebrating a milestone birthday as he is turning 80 this year.

MOME students triumphed at the Red Dot Design Awards, often referred to as the "Oscars of the design world" with revolutionary concepts including a hybrid tram, a modular pram, an innovative VR headset for home workouts, and a stretcher designed for rough terrains. These award-winning projects were developed under the new preparatory programme of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, whose success is demonstrated by five out of twelve submissions receiving accolades.
