JKU Young Chemistry Scientists.

How do you make a frisbee out of recycled bottle caps? What can you print using a 3D printer? Dive into the colorful world of chemists and learn all about polymer materials, the latest inventions, and sustainable recycling.

As part of the JKU Young Chemistry Scientists program, you will meet internationally renowned researchers and experts. During the workshop sessions, you not only learn from them, you also find out more about prospective careers and degree programs. 

As a JKU Young Scientist, we also offer a unique opportunity to complete a summer internship at the JKU or at a well-known company in Upper Austria.
