> Course Descriptions for grades 1 through 4

SCHÜLER EXPERIMENTIEREN: Parents of students who have been selected by their science teacher for the SchüEx Afternoon Course have been informed by email before Summer Break. Therefore, the course is closed and it is not possible to sign up for it online.

THE REGISTRATION WAS OPEN HERE FROM JULY 12 THROUGH AUGUST 3RD, 2018.

In order for a course to take place, there needs to be a minimum of in general 12 participants. In cases where more than the maximum number of participants is registered for a course, a drawing will decide which participants get a spot in that course and which are going to be placed in a different course. If there are enough teachers available a second group for that course will be created. In order to provide equal opportunities the chronological order in which participants registered is not taken into account.
