What is NeuroCamp?
NeuroCamp is a summer school for high school students in Munich. It is organized by current LMU students, as well as young researchers. We want to introduce students to the fascinating and exciting field of Neuroscience.
Who can participate?
The summer camp is made for Senior (final and penultimate year) Gymnasium students.
Where does NeuroCamp take place?
Do I have to live in Munich?
No. However, we do not provide accommodation. So if you wish to participate and are selected and are coming from outside of Munich, you will have to arrange for your own stay.
Do you provide accommodation?
No. If you are coming from outside of Munich, you will have to arrange for your own stay.
How much does it cost?
The cost of the school is 350 euros, and which amounts to a fee covering the basic running costs. These include all the food and snacks as stated in the timetable, all supplies for the labs, social activities and costs such as printing.
However, we strongly believe that the financial situation of students should not be an obstacle to obtaining education and knowledge.
What are the arrangements for food?
We will provide you with lunch and coffee breaks. You will have to have breakfast and dinner at home.
Who are the teachers?
A mixture of professors as well as younger researchers will be your teachers. As a rule, more senior scientists will give the lectures, and PhD students and post-doctoral researchers will work closely with you during the research projects. Additionally, MSc and PhD students will be around during the whole week, and you can chat with them about anything you want.
What level of English do I need?
I’ve never done Neuroscience before. Can I still apply?
Do you give certificates?
Yes. At the end of the school you will receive a certificate of participation. Unfortunately however, we are unable to give school credits.
