What you might also want to know

Why is there a Vienna Children’s University in 2020?
We think that science and research are very important. That’s why we want to be there for you and will offer a summer full of curiosity, research and fun together: online, in your mailbox, in the living room, in the park!

Why does the Vienna Children’s University not take place as usual?
Very simple: Big events are forbidden, because wherever a lot of people come together at one place, the danger is very high that the virus is passed on from person to person. The graduation ceremony and the pick-up day or large teaching events are part of it.
Students also study during the summer holidays and then take their exams. The rooms of the universities, where the Vienna Children´s University normally takes place, are used by the students themselves this summer.
