The Kinderuni

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

There are different ways to study at the Kinderuni:

  • in English: Each lecture explains a different 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.
  • in other languages: there are 6 additional languages currently available. Spanish and French will be added soon.

Subtitles are available in German and English 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 page "About the Kinderuni" page.
