Boys' Day

Following on from the success of Girls’ Day – an event that has been running for many years now and that sees girls invited to universities to take part in exciting STEM subject-related talks, workshops, activities and tasters – since 2010, Paderborn University has also been offering boys aged 12-18 the chance to get a taste of university life. The program of events organized shows that there is much to discover and explore beyond the courses of study traditionally attended by boys.
