Have you ever asked yourself how clinicians can make a certain diagnose? How is the clinician concerned with PCs?

A lot! Probably more than you could ever imagine.

At our Girls' Day, you will learn from researchers of the Fraunhofer MEVIS institute how medical images are generated and how these are transferred to the PC. Furthermore, we would like to explore the cognition of colors and contrasts of the human eye and investigate how this can be influenced. You will learn interactively how images are displayed in the computer and how they can be analyzed with respect to certain diseases.

The Fraunhofer Talent School is an event for pupils from 10th grade until the Abitur who are talented and interested in technology. In various three-day workshops in the autumn holidays, they gain theoretical and practical insight into ongoing scientific problems and develop solutions.

In addition, we provide the possibility to discuss the daily work of a researcher as well as national and international academic activities with Fraunhofer employees.

Fraunhofer MEVIS offers a workshop called "Where is the tumor and how do I get there? - From imaging to therapy" where the pupils learn about imaging using MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) as well as the subsequent image processing and analysis. The images acquired in the beginning of the workshop will be examined afterwards. Together, we will develop methods which can be used to detect and measure abnormalities in MR images. Furthermore, we will see a clinical navigation system in action.



In 2017, Fraunhofer MEVIS organized the International Fraunhofer Talent School Bremen for the first time. The International Fraunhofer Talent School Bremen brings together an artist, a group of Fraunhofer MEVIS scientists and pupils from the 7th and 8th degree from Bremen, Linz and Upper Austria in spring and summer 2017.

We developed this program to foster the interplay of science, tech and art and to stimulate critical dialog about, and implementation of new technology within society. The aim is to foster the engagement with and competent ownership of future technology. Pupils gained insight into new technology and participate in discussions. This program reaches pupils in STEM topics (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), who are interested in art and raises awareness of the role of math, physics, and information science in health care and life sciences.

Children's University 2011

The Children's University organized by the University of Bremen addresses children in the age of 8 to 12 years. There are lectures from researches every day in the morning as well as workshops in the afternoon where pupils can research by themselves. Every year, Fraunhofer MEVIS participates at the Children's University with lectures on topics like "Make invisible things visible" or "Modeling and simulation, using mathematics and PCs". Furthermore, parents can visit the Fraunhofer MEVIS institute to learn about the research.

Fraunhofer MEVIS offers individual internships for pupils throughout the whole year. During the internship, interns will get an insight into the research activities and software development of Fraunhofer MEVIS. Independent working, technical interest, and interns' engagement are in the foreground of the internship. If you are interested in an internship at Fraunhofer MEVIS, please send your application documents to pupils@mevis.fraunhofer.de.
