Study and research in the summer break

30 youngsters attend the 2019 edition of Junior Academy Bavaria

In the middle of the summer vacation, from late August to early September, our research campus in Waischenfeld in Franconian Switzerland hosted the Junior Academy Bavaria, a ten-day event in which exceptionally talented and inquisitive pupils with wide-ranging interests in the 8th or 9th grade at high schools in Bavaria attended courses on a range of topics. Besides these courses, the 30 youngsters could also choose from interdisciplinary activities including sports, creative workshops, and excursions.

The research campus in Waischenfeld, a creative work environment that encourages straightforward and unconventional project-based scientific work, research, testing, cooperation, and exchange, provides ideal conditions for the Junior Academy Bavaria. Set in the heart of Franconian Switzerland, the venue combines all the benefits of a facility equipped to the standards of our Institute with seclusion from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
