MUT – Girls and Technology

STEM subjects - mathematics, computer science, the natural sciences, and technology - are supposed to be boring? No way! Let our "Girls and Technology" programme prove you wrong and find out for yourself how exciting the STEM subjects at the University of Bayreuth really are.

Join us again in the 2024 autumn holidays for our "On your marks - technology - go!" (10-14 years) and "MINT-HerbstUni!" (15-19 years)! Every year, we put together a new programme for you with lots of exciting hands-on workshops from a wide range of STEM subjects. At the start of the school year in September, you will always find the latest programme and detailed information on how to register here on this website. As workshop places are limited, it is worth registering early. So click through our programme in September and secure your preferred places!

We are looking forward to your visit!

On your marks  –  get tech – go!

A holiday programme for girls from 10-14 years of age

How does slip become a cup? Why do ships sink? How does a pocket warmer work? How can light be investigated? And, what do I need to build a giant foam fountain?

Get to the bottom of these and other exciting questions in various practical workshops.

MINT-Herbstuni (STEM Uni in Autumn)

A holiday programme for young women from 15-19 years of age

How do solar cells and LEDs work? Which coffee mug is the best? How can I grow bismuth crystals? Which robot wins? How do you turn slip into a cup? How do you divide shared luggage fairly? And, how do I actually find my way through the thicket of study options? We have prepared these exciting topics for you this year!

That's what our former MUT participants say:

A look back at 2023

A total of 37 girls from 18 schools took part in our last event (2023)! Some of them travelled to the University of Bayreuth campus from over 300 km away to take on the role of scientists in 11 exciting hands-on workshops and investigate research questions in the field of university STEM subjects. A new and special feature this year was a workshop offered by the Student Advising Office for older participants to help them better navigate their own study and career choice process. 

It was once again a very successful event and we would like to thank all the workshop teams involved for their dedication, our participants for the many interesting questions and their enthusiasm, and all the teachers and parents for their support with career guidance.  Together we have once again made the event a terrific autumn highlight!

Impressions of the event can be found at www.mut-oberfranken.de.

We would like to sincerely thank all participants and all the dedicated workshop teams who make the event a successful highlight (again and again)!   

Our thanks go to...
