Bionics School Visits

how does a gecko manage to run up the walls or
the lotus flower to let water drops roll off it?

 

 

With a lively lecture and two suitcases full of experiments, students at DIT will introduce pupils from 5th to 7th grade to the topic of bionics. Bionics - What are you looking for in nature to make it useful for humas? The school visit is carried out in cooperation with the Initiative Junger Forscherinnen und Forscher e.V. Würzburg. It is free of charge, designed for four school classes and designed for four teaching hours (plus assembly and disassembly before and after). Further information is available in this detailed report of the project.


Informatics School Visits

use our exciting workshops (virtual & in person) for your school

 

Creative tinkering in a team - in short: "hacking" - is the focus of Make Your School. As part of the project, two to three-day hackdays are held at schools. Pupils think about how they can help shape their school and make it even better. With the help of technical and digital tools, and with the support of experts in computer science, design and mechanical engineering, they develop prototypes and present them to the press and the school public.


Electronic school visits

what is a capacitor?
how does a circuit work?

 

 

Join our students Jakob and Sepp in the electrical lab of the EMT Faculty!
They give you a 2h electrical taster day and a campus tour.


Individual Visits with your Class at DIT

do you have your own ideas?

we are looking forward to your message!

 

We offer customised school visit programs, individually adapted to the needs of your class. The duration of our school visits depends on the desired program content and can vary from the duration of a lecture block to the organisiation of an entire day at DIT.

Girls'Day & Girl's Day Academy

100 schoolgirls, not only from schools in the region, but from all over Germany, took part in Girls'Day 2021 at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology!
This year, technicians and teachers from the university offered varied virtual workshops that gave the girls the opportunity to experience "STEM at first hand" despite the distance. DIT campus was also explored as part of a virtual campus tour. Two female students from the Deggendorf Institute of Technology were on hand with materials for the girls.

  • The Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering showed how to build bridges out of paper like a real engineer.
  • Those interested in natural sciences gained insights into the field of optics in a spectromenter workshop.
  • The university's technology campuses also showed interesting hands-on programmes. TC Cham introduced schoolgirld to the world of 3D printing. And at TC Teisnach, one could experience a day as a physicist and precision optician.

You can find more information at: 

 

Girls' groups between 7th and 10th grade can spend a whole or half day at DIT within the framework of a Girls'Day Academy at their school. We offer exciting lectures, laboratory tours and experiments.

Here you can find more information about the Girls'Day Academy.

Students Inform School Pupils

As part of our school support programme,  students visit schools and provide school children with age-appropriate information about study and career orientation:

  • They report about their own experience on their degree course
  • They advise about the application process
  • They help in with guidance
  • They support with any work experience

Our students give lectures and take part in school information fairs.

TechHols

We offer holiday programmes during the German holidays for children and pupils. These seminars focus on technical subjects like 3D printing, programming and computer science in cooperation with our STEM team.


Teacher Training

Project and Scientific Seminars

 

project seminars

Experience study courses and student life at DIT

In addition to the general career guidance provided by the employment agency, we present the study programmes offered by the Deggendorf Institute of Applied Sciences, e.g.

  1. at your own school
  • Study and career information fairs
  • Project seminars
  • information events on the choice of subjects or training courses

  •  

 

The Deggendorf Institute of Technology supports project work together with cooperating companies. Students are thus given the opportunity to familiarise themselves with courses of study and occupational fields in the fields of technology, business and health. Prerequisites for this are prior consultation with the school and available time and personnel resources at DIT.

For project work that cannot be directly supervised by DIT, we try to arrange business contacts.
