  • Children, young people and media is a topic which sparks heated debate. Should children steer clear altogether of televisions, computers or smartphones? Is it true that young people are not interested in books? These are just some examples of the questions investigated by researchers from the Institute of Book Studies at FAU. The researchers discovered one crucial aspect: the key to using both analogue and digital media is literacy.

  • Students studying computer science and medical engineering have set up technical support for schools in Erlangen. Under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Andreas Maier, Chair of Computer Science 15 at FAU, the team of volunteers provides support to teachers, parents and children. The team is looking for more volunteers.
