TU Braunschweig is committed to promoting young talent. An important tool is the School-network (AG Schule-Uni), which follows a holistic approach under the umbrella programme "Check-in - Discover Science": It wants to reach children and young people of all age groups and school types according to their level of knowledge and generate interest in science and research.
To achieve this, the AG Schule-Uni concentrates, structures and strengthens all central and decentralised events of the TU Braunschweig in this field. At the same time, it makes the dedicated promotion of young talent at the TU Braunschweig more visible to the outside world.
The AG Schule-Uni is assigned to the Presidency of the TU Braunschweig. It is supported by external consultants from Braunschweig's educational and scientific institutions.
Under the "Check-in - Discover Science" programme, the TU Braunschweig concentrates a wide range of learning, especially in the MINT subjects (mathematics, computer science, natural sciences, technology), but also in the humanities and sports sciences. The practice-oriented projects support and enhance teaching in all school types and grades, for example with exciting experiments.
The events also help participants to orient themselves towards training and studies at a later stage and promote a realistic assessment of their own potential and an early commitment to the TU Braunschweig.
More than 40 different events are available to the pupils to choose from. The laboratories, workshops, lectures, institutes and advisory services can be visited individually or in groups. Teachers benefit, too: Continuing education is also part of the programme.
If you would like to launch a new School-network offer at the TU Braunschweig, you can submit an informal application for membership in the School-network (AG Schule-Uni) via the board and benefit from the very beginning.
The initiators of new School-network offers are advised by the board on concept, financing, advertising and evaluation. In addition, new School-network projects are given access to the internal online guide with numerous tips on process optimisation and quality control.
All School-network offers are listed on the continuously updated central websites.
You will find helpful information on how to interact with the media in our flyers about communicating science.
