offered in biology, chemistry, physics and computer science and
supervised by scientists of the University of Göttingen and affiliated
The students work in small groups of two or three. All experiments are
hands-on experiments. Demonstrations are rarely used and limited only
to highly sophisticated experiments, to the use of NMR, X-Ray or other
large research instruments.

At the weekends and in the evenings a cultural and social program is
arranged. Social contacts among students of different cultural
background are as important as experimental work and scientific
learning. All social activities are accompanied by experienced teachers.
