Every two years, the University of Applied Sciences Nordhausen organises a children's university on the occasion of Children's Day (1 June). There are mini-lectures by "real" professors on various topics and exciting experiments to take part in. The children will be able to get a taste of the university atmosphere with fun and games. Under the guidance of laboratory engineers, research assistants and students, chemical and microbiological processes from everyday life, are explained and tried out for themselves. Paper recycling and modern separation technology for packaging are further project topics as well.
