The one-week summer course of lectures takes place at the Institute for Physics of the TU Ilmenau. In 2017, the physics summer was under the motto "Cosmos and elementary particles". This year's theme will be announced soon.
The Ilmenauer summer of physics presents the meaning of physics for modern life. In lectures, scientific aspects of the current topic are presented, deepened through internships and developed in seminars by the pupils groups under student supervision. Fun and success in dealing with the topic should help to persuade the pupils' interest in physics and to awaken a motivation for studying Physics at the TU Ilmenau. The summer course of lectures is enriched by encounters with professors, staff and students and rounded off with evening events.
