Science Centre

Since school year 2020/21, the STEM team goes one step further and launched a new bilingual afterschool program: the Phorms Science Centre.

Why come to the Science Centre?

  • Students develop both their practical STEM skills and their general problem-solving skills.
  • More freedom to plan and conduct experiments than in the classroom.
  • Participants learn more about different careers in STEM.
  • Help with preparation for internships.
  • Free for all Phorms students.
  • Prizes for participating in some competitions.

To foster students´ interest in STEM and prepare them for future careers in STEM.

Phorms students can join the science center for free. External students are asked to pay a fee of 120€ per semester, which covers all materials (computers, robots, chemicals), registration and insurance fees.

  • After-school programme for both internal and external students.
  • Twice a week for younger students and once a week for older students.
Activities for grades 5 - 9:
First Lego League
Mathematics competitions "Mathematics Olympiad" and "Kangaroo of Mathematics"
Chemistry competition "Chemie - mach mit!"
Activities for grades 10 - 12:
"Internationale Biologie-Chemie-Physikolympiade"
"Mathematics Olympiad"
"Jugend forscht" projects

First Lego League - tuesdays from 16:00 to 17:00

What is First Lego League?
An international research competition and robotics competition in which teams work in four challenging catagories (Robot Game, Robot Design, Research andTeamwork).

What will we be doing?
You will design and build a robot to take part in a series of games as a team. You will research the theme of the year and present your research as a team. You will build leadership and/or teamwork skills in an educational, creative and fun environment.

    Math Competitions - tuesdays from 16:45 to 17:30

    Mathematik Olympiade and Kangaroo Math challenge
    These are both international challenges that require perseverance, creativity and imagination, logical thinking, and other problem-solving strategies. By preparing for these challenges and taking part you will develop your math skills.

    Chemie – "Mach mit" - thursdays from 16:00 to 17:00

    You will carry out a series of experiments in groups of up to three students before writing up what you have done and attempting to explain your observations using your scientific knowledge.

    "Jugend forscht" - wednesdays from 16:00 to 18:00

    Work on your own scientific project and present it in front of a jury of scientists!

    Preparation for Science and Math Olympiads - wednesdays from 16:00 to 18:00

    who: Grade 9 - 12 students
