Schools Research Centre
The Schools Research Centre at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt supports school students and their teachers with projects in the fields of Mathematics, Computer Science, Natural Sciences and Technology (the "STEM" subjects). What's most important is that you're enthusiastic and willing to learn. Whether it's a "Jugend Forscht" competition project or a school club - we're happy to provide a variety of help and support.
The Schools Research Centre also offers extracurricular workshops, projects, field trips and courses for inquisitive, inventive students aged 10 and over - either on-site or online. Currently, Bionics, Biology, Computer Science and Robotics are the key areas we're working on.
Supervision of school projects
The team at the Schools Research Centre offers support to school students working on their own projects - from developing a research topic to taking part in competitions such as Schüler experimentieren/Jugend forscht.
The staff at the Schools Research Centre oversee final school projects ("Seminarfacharbeit") on STEM related topics and can establish contact with experts at the University of Applied Sciences and in the STEM region of Central Thuringia.
