School Visits

Bionics School Visits


How does a Gecko manage to run up the walls or the lotus flower to let water drops roll off it?

With a lively lecture and two suitcases full of experiments, students at DIT will introduce pupils from 5th to 7th grade to the topic of bionics. Bionics - What are you looking for in nature to make it useful for humas? The school visit is carried out in cooperation with the Initiative Junger Forscherinnen und Forscher e.V. Würzburg. It is free of charge, designed for four school classes and designed for four teaching hours (plus assembly and disassembly before and after). Further information is available in this detailed report of the project.

Here we go! Welcome to our virtual Children's University (Kinderuni).

Simply register and join us!


Are you curious and have lots of questions? Are you between 6 and 12 years old? Then you've come to the right place: every school year we have exciting topics at the Kinderuni. You can find them under the heading "Programme". Have fun browsing. We look forward to seeing you soon.


Data protection

We're continuously adding dates to our virtual programme for the school year 2021/22 - be excited!
!!all dates virtual!!

26 November 2021 - "Off to the bin! And then?" (Miriam Augustin, Zweckverband Abfallwirtschaft Donau-Wald)

What happens to our waste and why is it so important to separate it? Come along and discover what happens to our waste, how we can avoid it and solve exciting riddles with us.

Date to follow: "The little history of the metre" (Johann Gerner, DIT).

How much is a metre actually, and who thought it up? Did the ancient Greeks or Romans also measure in metres many thousands and hundreds of years ago? Didn't they still measure in feet and cubits? At this children's university we will bring order to the units of measurement. Join in!

Date to follow: "Viruses must stay inside - clean room laboratories, cow barns and operating theatres" (Hartmut Hölzel, Caverion)

How can dangerous viruses be prevented from escaping from research laboratories? How do operating theatres stay free of viruses and bacteria? What technology is in these buildings and rooms, and how is it maintained so that it never breaks down?

At ECRI we will start again with Kinderuni lectures in person.

Please note:
Pre-registration is required at
Wearing a medical mask until you reach your seat.
Max. Number of participants 30 - places will be allocated according to receipt of registrations.

Friday, 19 November 2021, 5 pm

Prof. Dr. Sascha Kreiskott (ECRI):
"On the move in the virtual world - security on the internet."


  • How old do I have to be?

If you are 8 years old, you are very welcome to come. For yonger children the lectures might still be too difficult, so that you would only be bored.

  • Do I have to register?

No, just come to the lecture that interests you.

  • What happens if I can't come?

No problem! Just come back next time. If you want, you can visit the Goethe online children's university in the meantime.

  • Is there a children's uni student card?

Yes, when you come to the university for the first time, you will receive a children's university card if you like. You can then use it to collect a sticker for each subsequent event. Once you have collected six stickers, you let us know and the next time you come you will receive a certificate from the children's university.

  • Do I have to bring anything with me to the children's uni?

Yes - a lot of curiosity! :-) And your student card, if you want to collect stickers. Otherwise you could bring pens and paper if you want to write something down. Or even a drink and a snack.

  • Can my parents come to the lecture as well?

Yes, but only if there is enough room in the lecture hall and only in the back rows. After all, the children's university is ther for you and it would be a pity if the adults took away the children's seats or blocked the view.

  • Where can we park our car?

You can park for free in the parking garage in the Edlmairstrasse (Stichstrasse in the direction of Ruderhaus/Donau)

  • When should I be there?

Of course right on time at the beginning of the lecture. So that everyone who wants a sticker can get it before, it would be good to be there about 15 minutes before the lecture starts.

  • What does the children's uni cost?


  • How do I find the children's uni?


Arrival by car:
Free parking is available in the parking garage between Dieter-Görlitz-Platz 1 and Stichstrasse in the direction of the wheel house.

Arrival by train:
The Deggendorf Institute of Technology is about 10-15 minutes walk from the train station. From Bahnhofplatz walk in the direction of the centre along Bahnhofstrasse until you reach the intersection of Hans-Krämer-Strasse. Turn right here into Hans-Krämer-Strasse and continue in the direction of the Deggendorf town hall. At the next big traffic light, cross the crossing straight ahead. This is where Edlmaierstrasse begins and after about 100 metres you will reach the University (Dieter-Görlitz-Platz 1)


Arrival by car via GoogleMaps.


  • Doctor

Doctors are doctors, right? No, not always. Doctors are also men and women, who know a lot about university subjects such as philosophy, mathematics, engineering or French. You can still get your doctorate after the normal graduation in any subject. You have to do research and continue studying, write a doctoral thesis and take exams. if a doctor diligently continues his research, he can later also become a > Professor.

  • Lecture hall

A lecture hall is a large room with many chairs and very small tables. The largest lecture hall of a university is often called Audimax. The rows of seats in the lecture hall are often quite narrow and go up like stairs. This way, there is room for a few hundrer listeners and everyone can see what is happening at the front of the blackboard. In many lecture halls, including th children's university lecture hall, you will find modern technical equipment, for example beamers, speakers and microphones and projectors.

  • Matriculation

If you want to study at the > University, you have to apply. To do this, you have to write down a lot of important data in a form, for example what grades you have in your Abitur, which subjects you want to study and why. Therefore, instead of enrollment" you often say "registration". You send the form to the university or college, and then you have to wait a while. Whether or not you get a place at the university often depends on the average grade of your Abitur: The better it is, the better your chances are getting into the university. If you have been accepted, you have to fill out a few more forms and at the end you will receive a student card and a > Matriculation number. So at the end of the enrollment you are a student.

  • Examination

Just as you write school assignment, students also write written exams. These are called exams and often last a few hours. The exams are usually written at the of a > semester, so in February or July.

  • Matriculation number

The matriculation number can be obtained at the > Matriculation. Each student has a unique number. This prevents students from being confused, even if they have the same name. This is important so that no grades or exams are mixed up. 

  • Mensa

"Mensa" is Latin and means "table". At the > University it can be translated as "lunch table", because the Mensa is the building where students, > doctors, > professors and everyone else who usually works there have lunch. The Mensa is located on campus. This is convenient because after lunch you don't have to walk so far to the > lecture hall, the library or the office.

  • Professor

At the university, teachers are not called teachers, but usually "professor" or "doctor" or more generally: "lecturer". Lecturers, i.e. also professors, give courses at the university called > lecture, seminar, exercise, practical training, excursion, etc. and thus ensure that students learn a lot and are well educated when they finish their studies. Professors are men and women who also research different topics in their subjects. That is why they are particularly well versed in their fields.

  • Re-registration

Every student who is enrolled at a university must re-register regularly for each > semester. This then means "re-registration". There is always a certain deadline for re-registration, which must be met.

  • Semester

In the > University, the calculation is not in school years, but in semesters. The winter semester begins on October 1 and the summer semester on March 15. Twice a year - always before a new semester begins - there is "lecture-free time", i.e. there are no courses for the students. This lecture-free period lasts two to three months. But this is not really a vacation like at school: During this time, students have to write homework (that is, long essays), do internships, conduct experiments or study for exams.

  • Student card

Every student who enrolls will receive a student card, similar to the way you get a student card from the school. Like the school card, the student card has advantages: You can get cheaper prices in some stores, on the bus, at the cinema or swimming pool - because students don't earn that much money yet. And if you show your student card in the cafeteria, you pay less for food than university employees or foreign guests.

  • Graduation

As at school, which ends with the Abitur (at the Gymnasium), the middle school (at the Realschule) or the Hauptschulabschluss (at the Hauptschule), the study at the > University also ends with a degree. There are different degrees - for example "Bachelor" or "Master" - for which you have to study for different lengths of time. Which degree you choose depends largely on what you want to do later as a profession. Although you cannot choose a profession by graduating from the children's university, the certificate you receive after attending several courses is worth something. It proves that you are an inquisitive, clever person who likes to learn new things and can therefore become a great student!

  • University

A university is a scientific university where science is researched, taught, studied and learned.

  • Lecture

In lectures, the > professors give a lecture on a specific topic and the students listen and take notes. A lecture usually lasts 90 minutes. There are also lectures or talks in the children's university. But unlike in the university for the adult students, these are not lectures where you are only supposed to listen silently. The teachers at the children's uni are happy if you ask questions or discuss with them whether what they present to you can really be true.

Exciting lectures with depth for all who want to know more. Wednesdays at 6 pm.

Data protection info

Wed. 15 December 2021: "Biopsychomedicine - What is it?" (Prof. Michael Frey, DIT).

What does the psyche have to do with our health or illness? How do the two influence each other? Is it imagination or biochemistry? Or what is actually behind it?

26 January 2022: "Bionics - amazing achievements that you definitely don't know yet" (Kirsten Wommer, DIT)

Beyond Velcro and the lotus effect, numerous inventions have already been copied from nature and transferred into our lives. Which ones are they? We shed light on achievements that you are guaranteed to know, but didn't know were bionics.

March 2022: "Viruses must stay indoors - from clean room laboratories, research cow barns and operating theatres" (Hartmut Hölzel, Caverion)

How do you keep dangerous pathogens in a research laboratory so that they cannot escape? How do you prevent them from entering operating theatres? At this youth university, you'll find out what room and building technology is needed for this and how to ensure that it never fails.

April 2022: "AI - How deeply is it already in our lives?" (Prof. Patrick Glauner, DIT)

This doesn't concern me. Or does it? At this Youth University you will find out where artificial intelligence is already affecting your life.

May 2022: "Gene sequencing - how it works and what it's good for" (Prof. Melanie Kappelmann-Fenzl, DIT)

Our genes - the book of life? What can we read from them? HOW can we read them at all? Professor Kappelmann-Fenzl tells us about these questions, the leaps in medicine and the sequencing of the so-called third generation.

June 2022: "Shares and a greedy bird - We develop an exit strategy" (Prof. Robert Feicht, DIT).

First we will play an amusing dice game - of course with the active participation of all participants. Afterwards, we will use a simple statistical method to derive the "optimal behaviour" for this game and consider for which real-life decision-making situations we can learn from it, e.g. for acting on the stock market.


Our virtual programm in the school year 2021:

Movement in series - Six hours of school desks, if not more. Journey home by bus or car. Homework at the desk, then well-deserved free time - in other words: gaming, streaming, surfing, chatting. Where is the time for exercise? Without it, nothing works. Don't you think? Then take a look and find out what role it plays in the development of physical and mental abilities and how you can make use of it.

  • Wednesday, 16 June 2021, from 6 - 6.45 pm: Part 1 - Movement: How much and for what purpose?
    Our interactive talk will look at the National Physical Activitiy Recommendations and explain the efforts of exercise on different parts of our body and our mind.
  • Wednesday, 23 June 2021, from 6 - 6.45 pm: Part 2 - If we move, can I learn better?
    Is movement good for the learning brain? We want to work out with you how you can use movement to make learning easier - especially in times of "homeschooling" - and why regular activity always benefits learning.
  • Wednesday, 30 June 2021, from 6 - 6.45 pm: Part 3 - How should I move?
    Are you still sitting or are you already moving? The last lecture is about learning more about your motor skills and how to use them in everyday movements as well as in sports. 

Registration - JugendUni

The event will take place virtuallly via Zoom. You will receive the date after your registration. We look forward to seeing you!



Girls'Day & Girl's Day Academy

100 schoolgirls, not only from schools in the region, but from all over Germany, took part in Girls'Day 2021 at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology!
This year, technicians and teachers from the university offered varied virtual workshops that gave the girls the opportunity to experience "STEM at first hand" despite the distance. DIT campus was also explored as part of a virtual campus tour. Two female students from the Deggendorf Institute of Technology were on hand with materials for the girls.

  • The Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering showed how to build bridges out of paper like a real engineer.
  • Those interested in natural sciences gained insights into the field of optics in a spectromenter workshop.
  • The university's technology campuses also showed interesting hands-on programmes. TC Cham introduced schoolgirld to the world of 3D printing. And at TC Teisnach, one could experience a day as a physicist and precision optician.

You can find more information at: 


Girls' groups between 7th and 10th grade can spend a whole or half day at DIT within the framework of a Girls'Day Academy at their school. We offer exciting lectures, laboratory tours and experiments.

The workshops are limited to 10 participants and last about 20 minutes. Afterwards there is a change, so that each group goes through all the thematic workshops. In this small group, individual questions can be answered very well. In total this programme takes about 2-6 hours, depending on how many workshops are selected, e.g.: 6 workshops in three hours, 8 in four hours (Lunch at the Mensa is possible).

A taster day during the Easter holiday and the counseling and events offered by the Centre for Studies provide further in-depth information.



The Deggendorf Institute of Technology supports project work together with cooperating companies. Students are thus given the opportunity to familiarise themselves with courses of study and occupational fields in the fields of technology, business and health. Prerequisites for this are prior consultation with the school and available time and personnel resources at DIT.

For project work that cannot be directly supervised by DIT, we try to arrange business contacts.
