Girls' Day on April 28, 2022

Next year, the AVV will for the first time participate with a campaign in the Girls' Day. Girls and women will be invited to visit the Hoher List Observatory and gain information about astronomy as a hobby and profession. The full-time program will encompass guides and easy-to-grasp talks about astronomical themes, as well as special talks about the study of astronomy at German or foreign universities, and opportunities in a professional career in astronomy. If the weather will allow, the program will be completed by observations of celestial objects in the night sky. More information can be found in Youth Groups.
