Children’s University on Tour is a project of science communication for children in public spaces. Children will interact with science and humanities in their direct environment (e.g. in parks or youth centres). They have the possibility to participate in special children’s lectures by "real" scientists and researchers, conduct experiments themselves and get information on universities and research.
Our target group are children between the ages of 7 and 12 years; particularly children who haven’t had any contact with universities and science so far, and who we try to reach in this manner.
Children’s University on Tour annually takes place for 2 weeks in public places in Vienna since summer 2007. In addition Children’s University on Tour visits places outside of Vienna since 2010.
