This year, the University of Tübingen is once again inviting all children between the ages of 7 and 12 to come to lectures at the university. These are held by real professors exclusively for children. The professors use simple language suitable for children and show that science can be fun. The lectures take place on Tuesdays at 5 p.m. in Lecture Hall 25 (Kupferbau, Hölderlinstraße 5).
These are the topics:
Tuesday, May 31, Dr. Wieland Brendel: Why can’t a computer do my homework yet?
Tuesday, June 21, Prof. Dr. Christiane Zarfl: Why do rivers have to flow wildly?
Tuesday, June 28, Prof. Dr. Detlef Weigel: Why is the sheepdog not a dachshund?
Registration is not necessary, you can just show up. Parents are welcome, but are asked to leave the seats to the children and take a seat in the back rows.
With this series of events, the university wants to familiarize children with scientific issues and get them excited about research. All information at:
