Jugend forscht - Competition


Jugend forscht (literal translation: “Youth researches”) is a German youth science competition. With more than 10,000 participants annually, it is the biggest youth science and technology competition in Europe.

On the 26th of February, VESTOLIT hosted the “Jugend forscht“ Competition.
VESTOLIT is sponsor of the regional contest in Marl.

Young scientists between six and 21 years old entered the contest at a regional level.
More than 90 young participants faced up to the jury, showing their projects in biology, chemistry, physics, maths/computer sciences, technology and working environment.

And we have seen some great things !

About Jugend forscht

"Jugend forscht" was initiated in 1965 by Henri Nannen, then editor-in-chief of the Stern magazine.

Participants work on a self-chosen research project, hand in a written report about their work, and then present their results first at regional levels and later at a national contest to an expert jury, usually in the form of a poster session, often including a practical demonstration.

Contest juries often invite university or industry experts to referee some of the projects, especially at the national contest, due to a high level of specialization.

Participants can enter in one of seven subject groups: Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences and Astronomy, Mathematics and Computer Science, Physics, Technology and working environment.
