Under the motto "Explore the Future," colleges and universities in the Stuttgart region invite students aged 12 and over to attend the Teens' University event series. The University of Stuttgart is contributing with 3 events.
How will we move around in the future? How can you live sustainably, develop your own apps, and how does upcycling actually work? From November 2021 to February 2022, the Teens' University will give school students aged 12 and over the opportunity to address important future issues on a weekly basis and to discuss various topics with experts. This event series aims to make the diversity that characterizes university life more visible and tangible for young people and to arouse their curiosity about studying.
A total of eleven events will take place on Fridays at 4 p.m. These comprise ten digital, interactive events and one onsite workshop. Films and interactive modules, such as experiments, discussions and voting, ensure a lively exchange and enough excitement during the online events.
Mobility, mechanical engineering, and bioengineering
The University of Stuttgart will be offering three events within the framework of the Teens’ University. The first event will be held on November 19 and will focus on the mobility of the future:
- The mobility of the future - air taxi or bike? Car or cable car, cargo bike or delivery drone - we will be introducing you to various mobility solutions for the urban transport of the future.
- For the engineers of tomorrow - experience Stuttgart's mechanical engineering live. In this workshop, school students can take a look behind the scenes of Stuttgart's mechanical engineering industry. The workshop will be held directly in the Stuttgart city center.
- Bioengineering: Technologies for the energy supply of the future. In this workshop, experts will show how to produce hydrogen from plant waste and microorganisms using a "do-it-yourself bioreactor".
