In October 2021 we cannot offer any courses for school students.
All of our courses for school students are being held online via Zoom or WebEx until further notice.
Target group: This course is oriented towards students in grades 11 and above who already have a topic for the fifth examination component of their Abitur.
Duration: 120 minutes
Our concept is designed to introduce students to initial search strategies and criteria beyond a simple Google search.
Students will search for resources using their topic as a starting point.
