Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics Tübingen
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.
BoGy is a program of the state Baden-Württemberg for professional orientation of students. Students from local secondary schools have the opportunity to see the daily life in a research institute for one week. If you are in 10th grade and interested in doing the internship here at the institute, please send your application including cover letter, CV and copies of your last report card to Stephanie Bertenbreiter: firstname.lastname@example.org

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)
