Workshops at the Haus der Astronomie

The Haus der Astronomie offers a wide range of astronomical workshops for school classes and kindergarten groups. The spectrum of topics ranges from a journey to the moon aimed at younger children to star spectroscopy for high school students. In each of these workshops, participants take part in several different astronomical activities or conduct hands-on experiments, thus expanding their knowledge of astronomical concepts and interrelations. Special knowledge is not required.

The workshops for kindergarten groups and schools take place from Monday to Friday in the Haus der Astronomie and last for three hours for primary and secondary schools and 1.5 hours for kindergarten children. Dates and focal topics are agreed individually in advance with the workshop leader.
