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 Girls’ Day with their best friend?
