Kids' and Students' University 2010

Dear kids and students,

Welcome to the Kids' and Students' University of Kiel University where professors from different fields report vividly on various subjects. Half of the lectures are designed for pupils aged 8 to 12, the other half is offered for students from 12 to 16. 

Each lecture comes with a handout which allows you to review the content of the lectures at home. They are available for download (in German). This enables students, parents and teachers to learn more about science and about new scientific research. More than 1,500 students took part in the lectures of the Kids' and Students' University in Kiel in 2008 and more than 2.000 students visited the lectures in 2009.

New lectures started in September and lasted until the end of November. Scientists presented their research work and answered your questions. There were six lectures which dealt with marine science, medicine, and nanotechnology and other topics.

The Kids' and Students' University was sponsored by the 'Stiftung 200 Jahre Fördesparkasse'. The project was developed in collaboration with the Leibniz Institute for Science Education at the University of Kiel (IPN) and it is promoted through a media partnership with the local newspaper Kieler Nachrichten and Geolino, a nationwide journal for kids.
