Welcome to Kiel Science Outreach Campus

We do research on science communication

At the Kiel Science Outreach Campus (KiSOC), we are investigating how the significance and the results of science can be communicated in an understandable way. Therefore, in various research and development projects, we look at how formats of science communication are designed and examine their effects. Some examples are multimedia learning environments, science exhibitions or programs in student laboratories. We also focus our research on the further development and evaluation of presentation formats.

How do we do this?

our project

The KiSOC started in 2016 as a Leibniz ScienceCampus. Leibniz institutions and universities work together in the ScienceCampuses with a thematic focus as equal partners. After the funding period, we continue to rely on the long-standing close partnership between Kiel University as an outreach-strong university and the IPN in the KiSOC.
