Mädchen machen Technik 2017

"Mädchen machen Technik" is a summer program organized by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) every year. School girls between 10 and 16 years old are invited to universities and departments to discover how exciting and challenging research in natural science and engineering can be.

On September 5th - 6th 2017, W2W will organize a program for 10 school girls between 12 and 14 years old. The participants will discover the complexity of the phenomena taking place in the atmosphere. They will make their own experiments, construct a thermometer, and learn about temperature, pressure, clouds and convection. They will then take part in lab experiments and learn about the foehn winds, the Coriolis force and convection. They will also visit the roof instruments, make their own weather charts and finally produce a numerical weather prediction.

The workshop called "Wind, Wetter und (Klima-)Wandel" was fully booked within the first day after the registration had opened. The program (in German) is available here.
