LEARN GERMAN THROUGH SCIENCE (3rd through 5th grade)

Do you want to know why shells sound like the ocean and how 3D-printing works and learn some basic German at the same time? Join in the digital Kinderuniversity (free online platform for children to engage with science) and its characters Professor Einstein and Frau Schlau in this after school club offered by UMass Amherst students. Short video-lectures about fascinating STEM-topics will be complemented with interactive and hands-on activities in which content and language simply come together.
