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.
