Natural Sciences & Technology

The Natural Sciences and Technology subject area encompasses all junior campus mainz projects concerned with the fields of chemistry, physics, geosciences, mathematics, and computer science. As a firmly established institution at JGU, the NaT-Lab School Laboratory can be visited by school classes, and it offers vacation programs, continuing education schemes, and so-called Researcher Days. The mentoring programs of the Ada Lovelace Project are designed to motivate specifically girls and young women to study subjects relating to the natural sciences and technology, and to subsequently take up a career in these fields. There are other individual projects associated with the themes of this subject area. These include "MONOID," a magazine unique in Germany, which deals with subjects from the field of mathematics and is aimed at an audience of children, the 'sneak peak' natural sciences courses for gifted elementary school children, and the PC laboratory.
