The KWTG is a network and has the aim to promote knowledge development and sharing. To achieve this KWTG facilitates the development of local networks of schools in which the question is central. In addition to these network developmentKWTG also performs a number of other activities.
- It organizes KWTG professionalization courses for teachers in primary schools and teams based on custom projects.

By so-called combined training (combined projects) Students can in practice get to work. It does a teacher training student with a student of a science course at a job.Thus, the pedagogical and didactic knowledge of the student-teacher trainingcombined with technical knowledge of the science student (eg, engineering or astronomy).

-Knowledge Science & Technology Gelderland
Knowledge Science & Technology Eastern Netherlands
Knowledge Science & Engineering South Netherlands
