Deutsche digitale Kinderuni - Für Kinder von 8 bis 12 Jahren© Goethe-Institut / Kids Interactive

The Kinderuni

The German Children’s Online University (Kinderuni) is a free educational platform of the Goethe-Institut for children aged 8 to 12. It helps children to find answers to questions about the phenomena of the world, and enables children to learn and play in the German language.

Become a student

At home

Every child can get involved with the Kinderuni at home. Our online platform is freely accessible without charge to all children.


All lectures are available free of charge, and are available at any time on our educational platform.

Access for parents

In order to track your child’s progress, register as a parent.

In school

Didactic materials are available for teachers who would like to work with the Kinderuni either inside or outside the classroom.

Didactic materials

The Kinderuni can be used in the classroom in different contexts and areas of application. We have developed didactic materials for German teachers to accompany each Kinderuni lecture.


Foreign language + subject matter teaching = CLIL (Content and language integrated learning), one of the leading methods of modern foreign-language instruction. Individual lectures will be integrable into the CLIL instruction method as supplemental material.

Access for teachers

Teacher accounts enable teachers to track their students' progress in the Kinderuni. The teacher account also provides access to learning scenarios for interactive German lessons with instructions and worksheets that are free to download.

Kinderuni Veranstaltungen

The Kinderuni participates in many activities and collaborates with various partners - this is how you can get to know the project live.
