Start of the student research center in the Kieler Forschungswerkstatt: Free afternoon program for girls and boys from grade 3 upwards

September 5th, 2018.

On September 12th, 2018, the Student Research Center (SFZ) will officially open its doors in the Kiel Forschungswerkstatt. On Wednesdays and Fridays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., children and young adults will have the opportunity to implement their own research ideas and work on scientific projects. Exciting courses and workshops also await young researchers in the newly designed rooms of the Botanical Garden.

Until the fall break, pupils from the third grade onwards are invited to six introductory sessions in September. They get to know the Kieler Forschungswerkstatt and its varied program and possibly already discuss their first project ideas. After the fall break, a course will be offered to help girls and boys find and formulate their own research questions. These include, for example, thematic offers from the individual laboratories, lectures on current research or workshops on scientific methods such as microscopy.

The SFZ Kieler Forschungswerkstatt is one of a total of six locations in the Schleswig-Holstein network of student research centers. At the locations Dithmarschen Nord, Dithmarschen Süd, Nordfriesland, Schleswig-Flensburg and Stormarn, great opportunities await all Schleswig-Holstein students in the new school year. Further information to the project as well as to the opening times and offers of the individual locations can be found under www.sfz-sh.de.

Participation in the afternoon program in the student research centers is free of charge and admission is possible at any time. All interested children and young adults can come to the introductory sessions in the Kiel Forschungswerkstatt from September the 12th - 28th, 2018 without registering. Prior registration is required for the program starting after the fall break.

The Project

The Schleswig-Holstein Student Research Centres Network (SFZ-SH) is a joint project of the Joachim Herz Foundation (Hamburg), the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Schleswig-Holstein and the Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education (IPN) at the Kiel University. Since the beginning of the school year 2017/18, student research centers have been established at a total of six locations in Schleswig-Holstein as part of the network.

Well-equipped rooms and individual support by skilled staff are available to girls and boys at eleven base schools and in the Kiel Forschungswerkstatt. Universities, other research and educational institutions and corporations are also involved in the regional services provided by the centers. This gives the young adults the opportunity to get to know the work in research networks and to jointly develop and implement creative solutions.

The Project Partners

The non-profit Joachim Herz Foundation is predominantly operational and primarily active in the fields of sciences, business and personal development. Small, innovative third-party projects are also funded in these three areas. Since 2017, the foundation has also been supporting research projects in the fields of medicine and law. The Joachim Herz Foundation was established in 2008 and is one of the largest German foundations.

The Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of the State of Schleswig-Holstein is involved in the network as a project partner and provides teaching posts for students in the research centers.

The Leibniz Institute for the Science and Mathematics Education (IPN) at Kiel University coordinates the network as a supra-regional educational institution. In addition, it provides its expertise for the conception of the network and accompanying research. As a joint institution of the IPN and Kiel University (CAU), the Kieler Forschungswerkstatt combines the technical research excellence of the CAU and its partner institutions with the teaching and learning research excellence of the IPN.
