Concept of the research camp
Emil's research camp is aimed at children from the second to fourth years who are particularly interested in mathematics and they are skillful for this subject. Thus, it is a good opportunity to bring the children to an out-of-school learning location, even at primary school age.
Who was Emil? The research camp was named after Emil Hilb, a well-known Würzburg mathematician, who was already enthusiastic about mathematics at an early age. For example, children are regularly invited to the research camp and, like Emil, they have fun and enjoy discovering topics about numbers, shapes and patterns. The research tasks are carried out by a group of students under the direction of Dr. Angela Bezold and Carola Schraml at the University of Würzburg (Didactics of Mathematics).
During the so-called researcher Saturdays, students are invited to explore interesting mathematical phenomena from arithmetic, geometry, subject-related mathematics and Stochastic. The children work alone in the morning, in joint action or in playful competition, addressing challenging tasks that encourage research, discovery and invention. They are supervised and supported by students. The young researchers lay parquets and cube buildings, explore primes numbers, combine ice orbs, determine game rules with winning potential or the number of games at a football championship.
