Program Offers Advanced Educational Experience on University Campus

High school students are able to expand their education at the XLAB in Göttingen, Germany, thanks to support from the nearby Dow site in Bomlitz.

XLAB is an experimental laboratory for young people that bridges the gap  between high school and university experiences. XLAB offers year-round experimental courses in all natural sciences. The lab is located on the Göttingen University campus.

The XLAB support is just one part of a donation program conducted by the Bomlitz site over several years. Interested parties in surrounding communities, such as schools, clubs, and charity associations, can apply for project support. A committee consisting of representatives of the site leadership, a works council, and external representatives select about 10 to 12 projects for funding. Selection criteria include “The project enhances the comprehension of Science and Technology or sparks interest of young people in corresponding jobs.”
