The Children’s University of Zurich has another fun-packed spring semester on offer for schoolchildren in third through sixth grade.

The series of four lectures take place on Wednesday afternoons. They focus on the wonders of physics, the impact of climate change, aching joints, and the periodic table - the spectacular ABC of chemistry.

There are also eight workshops, which provide more in-depth insights into a topic, such as: What is time? The children can also learn about the work of dental researchers or earth observation from space.
