Researching, experimenting and being creative – that's the focus of the vacation camp of the meerMINT initiative on the campus of Constructor University in Bremen-Nord. The workshops and excursions around "Nature and the Environment" are free of charge and will take place from August 7th to 11th. Registration is still possible until July 28th.
The meerMINT program promises a week of summer vacation full of energy and fun at Dock Nord. Surrounding the motto nature and environment, school children aged 10 - 13 can research, experiment and get creative on various topics. Whether it's experiments on climate change, programming sensors, researching natural and environmental phenomena or exploring the environment with a microscope: participants are encouraged to contribute and implement their own ideas and interests. An excursion is also planned for two days, but the exact destination has not yet been revealed.
The vacation program takes place daily from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Those who wish may come to the dock as early as 9 a.m. and have breakfast together, pursue small STEM projects or explore the Constructor University campus. Food and drinks will have to be brought by each person. The workshop language is German.
