IMS welcomes gifted youngsters

October 09, 2009

The IMS hosted a visit of the Elterngruppe Tübingen des Landesverband Hochbegabung Baden-Württemberg e.V. Accompanied by their parents more than 30 adolescence spent an exciting afternoon at the IMS. The young guests ranging in age between 10 and 15 were given short presentations in order to introduce them to the microelectronic and nano technology field followed by a tour through the IMS premises. The youngsters found out how microchips are manufactured, mounted and tested and were given an outline of the technical effort that is required. Following this, they were able to conduct some of their own experiments. Using the "IMS BOARDS" that were developed for the Ideenpark fair last year the Juniors were able to design and try out their own electronic circuits. However, the most exciting remained the chance to ask all sorts of questions. Our scientists and engineers were fired with questions until evening.

The IMS team is excited about the attraction the world of science and technology poses particularly to children and adolescence. For further information on events for “future scientists“, please refer to
