The Kinderuni

The German Digital Kinderuniversity ("Kinderuni") is a free educational program for children created by the Goethe-Institut. Students of the online university can explore 30 different lectures in three faculties: Humankind, Nature and Technology

There are two ways to study at the Kinderuni:

  • in English: Each lecture explains a different scientific topic in English while teaching a few German words in a fun and playful way.
  • in German: Students can watch the entire lecture in German and learn new, more complex German words in each video.

Subtitles can be turned on in either language to help understanding. Successfully completing lectures advances the students' Kinderuni career - from student to Bachelor to Master, Doctorate, Junior Professor... and eventually to Professor! 
Further information can be found on the "About the Kinderuni" page.
