Research Opportunities

The “Schülerkolleg” in Freiberg: Once a year (This year: 13. – 14. 09. 2021) students in the 11th and 12th grades of high school can spend a few days experimenting at the University of Freiberg! You will get to know the different work areas and working methods of the different chemical disciplines as you will spend the days at different institutes and you will also visit the mine in Freiberg as well as the museum “terra mineralia”. A friend of mine has participated this program last year and she loved it! Having the chance to experiment with other students your age with similar interests is something that you shouldn’t miss.

The DLR School Lab in Dresden: In this Lab everybody, if normally interested in Chemistry or not, will have fun! Normally you go there with your whole class and experiment on current topics like solar energy for one day, but I am sure you can join a group if you write the organizers an email (all of them are very nice 🙂 ). I have been there with my class mates at least 3 times and it was fun every time!

ACS Project SEED: Project SEED (Summer Experiences for the Economically Disadvantaged) is a paid summer internship program for high school students. For 8 to 10 weeks during the summer, SEED students work in real laboratories, with real scientists serving as their mentors. Students learn about careers in chemistry and receive mentoring in college preparation and professional development.
