The workshops promote the concept of STEM teaching combined with German and are linked to core subjects which are part of the curricula in England. They inform students about the recent research projects of German scientists, showcase future prospects and focus on the topic of studying in Germany. Suitable for secondary school pupils who are in their 3rd year and above of studying German. Separated into small groups (speed-dating principle), they learn about new experiments and simultaneously study the German language.
