Education in Krefeld:
Holiday campus for students at the university
Krefeld From October 4th to 7th, the cosplay workshop “Die Zauberwerkstatt” will take place on Campus Krefeld Süd. In the second week of vacation there are also taster lectures in all ten departments.
Photovoltaic workshop, programming courses, chemistry lab and cosplay: During the two-week autumn break, the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences offers many exciting and free offers for schoolchildren. In the second week of the holiday, interested parties can also take part in introductory lectures in all ten departments at the Krefeld and Mönchengladbach locations.
From October 4th to 7th, the cosplay workshop “Die Zauberwerkstatt” will take place on Campus Krefeld Süd. Cosplay involves recreating characters from manga, films, and video games as closely as possible to the original through costume and behavior. Pupils from the seventh grade upwards can sew a matching robe and build their own accessory out of thermoplastic material in the MakerSpace. Registration closes on September 28th. The course takes place in cooperation with the zdi center KReMINTec Krefeld.
On October 5th, the focus in the chemistry laboratory will be on cosmetic chemistry and metal engraving. The participants can make their own cream and etch a logo onto a metal cup using electrochemical corrosion. A total of eight places are available for this workshop on the Krefeld West campus.
In addition, the Coding School takes place twice. From October 4th to 7th at Campus Krefeld Süd and from October 11th to 14th at Campus Mönchengladbach. Pupils from the age of 13 learn how to use the single-board computer Raspberry PI, programming languages such as Python C, BASH and the basics of programming. For example, you can develop an app and try the virtual reality technology.
The course “Sunny Prospects – Photovoltaics” is brand new. In the workshop on the Krefeld South campus, schoolchildren learn what a photovoltaic system can do. The participants can experiment independently and build a small electronic circuit to operate energy storage and a motor. “The courses support young people in their choice of study. They deal with their own abilities and interests. The experience gained there can be an important step in the decision-making process,” says Kirsten Möller-Mevißen, head of the Central Student Advisory Service.
In the second week of vacation, schoolchildren get an insight into subjects and student life as part of the taster course. You can attend lectures in all departments and find out more about the courses on offer. In addition, they can use the offers of the Central Student Advisory Service “Studying with a scholarship?” and “Neuland Studium. School vs. Study”.
