Drei Jugendliche am Rechner

Campus Berlin-Buch promotes "Jugend forscht"

Young talents from the fields of mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology (MINT) will start in February in Berlin at the nationwide competition for young scientists "Jugend forscht". This year's motto is: "Ingenious by chance"? The MDC is also participating as a sponsoring institution.

The Buch Campus is one of the four locations of "Jugend forscht" in Berlin. The Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC), the Leibniz Research Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP), Campus Berlin-Buch GmbH and - associated - the Experimental and Clinical Research Center (ECRC) of MDC and Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin are hosting the competition as sponsors.

A total of 38 projects by students between the ages of 10 and 18 were assigned to the Campus Buch. The sponsoring institutions design a program for the regional competition - from the introductory event to the design of the presentations and their evaluation by the jury to the award ceremony.

"The competition is exciting every time," says Dr. Ulrich Scheller, managing director of Campus Berlin-Buch GmbH. "Whether 'accidentally ingenious' or simply enthusiastic about implementing their own ideas - 'Jugend forscht' is a very good incentive to try out the natural sciences and technology and to come into contact with research institutions or companies."
