German-Japanese ScienceCamp Kick-off in Kiel
Both German and Japanese students have the opportunity to get to know each other over four days at the first German-Japanese ScienceCamp that is being held here at the IPN in Kiel.
Ten Japanese students arrived in Kiel on Sunday, 6^th September to partake in the various activities together with their German peers and fellow science enthusiasts. For the invited German students, this is a return visit to Kiel, because they were winners at the school competitions held here last year. The invitation to the ScienceCamp was part of the prize, and the winners, of course, were delighted to accept the invitation.
All the 16-17 year-old guests can expect an interesting and diversified programme, which consists of experimenting, supplementary talks and seminars. Additionally, some excursions (e.g. to the Electrons-Synchrotron (DESY) research centre in Hamburg) as well as sightseeing trips in both Hamburg and Kiel are planned for the visitors. ScienceCamp is not only interested in imparting knowledge to the students, but also in offering the school groups from two very different cultures an opportunity to get to know each other.
