"Winter Academy"


The Winterakademie Physik ("Winter Academy for Physics") of the Faculty of Physics at TU Dortmund University is aimed at interested pupils from year 10 upwards. At the academy, participants can directly experience how physicists work and how the study of physics is structured. In exciting lectures, researchers report on their work at TU Dortmund University. 

In 2024, the Winter Academy will be held under the motto "Matter in the cosmos: from quanta to the universe". On Friday, 26.01.2024, we offer information about studying at the Department of Physics, exciting lectures and the opportunity to visit laboratories and practical rooms. The lecture program can also be followed via Zoom (link below) instead of on site. Registration for Friday is not required.

On Saturday, 27.01.2023, the series "Zwischen Brötchen und Borussia" celebrates its 20th birthday. The "Physikanten" show planned for this occasion is a real highlight of this series and could also be attended either on site or online after the Academy Friday. However, a separate registration is absolutely necessary for this:

Please also note: the show on Saturday will take place at a different venue to the Academy on Friday.
