Discover a new Path: Explore Germany
The Goethe-Institut invites high school students who are interested in science to discover Germany! Twelve talented young scientists will have the opportunity to travel to Germany from November 28 - December 7, 2014 and learn what it has to offer.
This trip is an all-expenses paid trip for the winning students.
You will experience Berlin, Braunschweig and Cologne. However, you will not only see interesting cities, but you will explore research institutions in the fields of Geoscience, Bionics, and Aerospace. A visit to a technical museum and a tour of the Volkswagen factory are also a part of the program. Furthermore, you will meet your German peers and experience life as a student in a German school.
Of course, there will still be time for sightseeing and a stroll through the Christmas market.
You will find details in the preliminary program.

Requirements for Participation: You must be a high school student and be between the ages of 16 – 18. Also, you must have worked on a STEM project and/or have participated in a high school science fair. It is not necessary that you speak German, but if you do, please let us know!
