Information for high school students and teachers
The MPI for Biological Cybernetics offers a variety of possibilities for students to get a first impression of the research done here. We are always happy to welcome interested students at our BOGY week and our Girls'Day. Further the Student laboratory for Neuroscience offers interesting insights.
Unfortunately, there are no BoGy internships available at the moment.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics is not offering any internships until further notice. It is currently impossible to estimate how the situation will further develop. A digital version does not offer an adequate substitute and cannot replace the on-site visit with the associated experience. We will inform you as soon as we offer internships again.
Are you interested in current research themes of the Max Planck Society? On the webpage max-wissen you can find movies, animations, pictures and information about various biological, geological and technical themes. You can also get the MAX-Newsletter for free. (German only)
Are you interested in neurosciences? Have you ever wanted to investigate a brain or an electric fish? Then check the Neuroscience Laboratory for school students (German only).
For one day girls turn into scientists. The Girls'Day is a German-wide initiative for girls to visit especially technical oriented companies, organisations and research institutions for profession finding. Goal is to arouse interest and to bring more women into these occupational fields. The Campus offers several places for girls between 15 and 19 years. The Girls'Day will take place every forth Thursday in April. (German only)
