19 October 2022. A university can be a very exciting place for children, too. It’s a place of research and teaching covering a vast array of topics, so this autumn once again the Children’s University is providing some insight into the various research fields of the professors at the HSG. The Children’s University has by now become an integral part of campus life, and the organiser, Edith Steiner, is pleased about the many years of success that the well-attended Children’s University has enjoyed: “I would like to thank all the children, parents and teachers for contributing to the many unique experiences we’ve had in the Audimax over the past 18 years.”
On the first afternoon of the Children’s University 2022, Professor Yvette Sánchez will take the students on a musical journey through Latin America in a lecture that will be accompanied by the Colombian percussionist Juliana Santacruz from Bern University of the Arts. During the second lecture, Professor Christian Alexander Hildebrand shows the children why smartphones not only help us to stay in touch with friends and acquaintances but also influence our decisions and behaviour – without us even noticing. Then, in mid-November, students will join Professor Johanna Gollnhofer to explore new trends in the schoolyard. And finally, at the very end of this year’s lectures, Sebastian Kernbach will explain what makes a dream job and how to get one.
Lectures will be held on Wednesdays from 3.00 to 3.45 pm in the Audimax (library building, room A 09-010), with doors opening at 2.30 pm. Registration is required, after which children can enter the Audimax hall. The offering is free of charge.
“It’s great to see the lecture room filled with so much excitement, laughter and full of childlike curiosity,” says Children’s University staff member Fabienne Hasler, who says she is reminded of her own first lecture at the HSG. “It’s impressive to see how faculty members explain the topics to the children during a lesson in such an understandable, exciting and vivid way.” At the same time, she adds, it is always interesting to see what questions children ask and how they inspire the faculty with fresh esprit.
