Description: The Equal Opportunity Office of the University of Heidelberg has set up a physics club for girls called Wolke7 (“Cloud 9”). At the weekly events, prepared and led by a female doctoral researcher, girls can explore questions in physics and be inspired to consider physics as a field of study and a potential career opportunity. Participants are also assigned female mentors who can answer their questions about the content of natural science courses. Participants can carry out experiments in various areas such as acoustics, magnetism, electricity, heat and cold.
The girls have the possibility to visit laboratories at the university and to get informed about current research results.
