MUT – Girls and Technology

STEM subjects – which means science, technology, engineering and mathematics  – are boring? No way! As part of the Upper Franconia-wide initiative "MUT - Girls and Technology", we show you how exciting careers and fields of work in technology can be.

Join us when we start our MUT activities for you again during the fall vacations on November 02 & 03, 2023! As usual, you will find the new activity programs with many exciting hands-on workshops from a wide range of STEM fields below the respective activity - as well as a link to the respective registration portal.

From 9/23 to 10/22/23 registrations are possible, but the number of spots is limited. The best thing to do is to click through our offer right now and secure your desired spot!

Attention: There is a change this year! The participation fees will be paid in advance - you will get further information directly after successful registration in the portal.

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!

Looking back to 2022

At our last event (2022), a total of 55 participants from 21 schools took part! Some of them came from over 200 km away to the campus of the University of Bayreuth to slip into the role of female scientists in 15 possible hands-on workshops, to become active themselves and to gain experience in the research and professional field of university STEM subjects.  

Impressions of the event can be found at

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