You are curious and always wanted to know why things are the way they are? Are you fascinated by black holes, gravitational waves and laser light? Then studying physics could be just the right thing for you! On April 28, 2022 you can learn how to become a physicist and what you can do with such a degree at a Girls’ Day event of the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) Hannover and the Institute for Gravitational Physics of Leibniz Universität Hannover. Registration is possible via the Girls' Day homepage.

Note for parents

Dear parents, 
our offer is suitable for students in grades 8 to 10. We would be happy if your children register with us themselves. Of course you can support your daughters, but in the interest of all potential participants we ask you to pay attention to the passions of your children. Are your children really interested in physics or do they just want to spend Future Day with their best friend?
