Programs, opportunities and support for schoolchildren

Paderborn University offers schoolchildren the opportunity to find out more about the university, its campus and course programs, with the chance to pursue their specific research interests in a number of projects and workshops and participate in a taster course at the university, for example. During the school holidays, the university offers holiday programs (so-called "Kinderferienfreizeiten") for schoolchildren to try their hand at research, crafts and experiments.

 

"Kinderferienfreizeiten" (Holiday programs during school holidays)

Since 1999, the university has held holiday programs on campus for children of university parents during the school holidays. The aim of these programs is not only to make life easier for staff and students trying to juggle work and childcare, but also to get primary school-age children interested in, or to consolidate their existing interest in STEM subjects.

You can find further information on Paderborn University’s holiday programs during school holidays here.

Girls' Day

Like many other universities, Paderborn University is also actively involved in the “Girls’ Day – Future Prospects for Girls” open day event.
