The University of Gdańsk pursues the idea of lifelong learning. We are the patron of the Children's University - a place where curiosity and fascination with the world of science are satisfied from an early age.
We invite children and young people aged 6-16 to study remotely - Children's University at Home. It is an innovative program of studying in a safe, home environment, all over Poland.
Younger Students (6-11 years old) receive 3 educational boxes: NOSE, HEN, MAGNET full of experiences and experiments. Each of them consists of 5 workshops that combine science, natural science and art. The methodology of the classes is based on the well-proven Method of Questions and Experiments. Children can carry out the activities on their own, with the help of films and voice instructions and during online meetings with scientists - the authors of the workshops.
The teen studies (12-16 years) are inspired by real seminars at university. The teenager chooses two specialisations, which he/she explores in depth under the guidance of mentors. He or she also attends online lectures in a variety of fields to encourage him or her to search for his or her own passions. In the 2021/22 academic year, students can choose specialisations such as Genetics, Forensic Science, Marketing and PR, Dietetics or Music Production.
