StudySmarter & STARK launch Corona support campaign for students
As part of a Corona aid campaign for pupils, StudySmarter, in cooperation with STARK Verlag, provides all learning content for all students completely free of charge in order to minimise the impact of school closures on the preparation for the Abitur.
The further spread of the coronavirus Covid-19 is to be curbed in several federal states by closing down all schools. These measures pose great challenges for all pupils, especially when preparing for the upcoming Abitur examinations.
