Welcome to Kiel Science Outreach Campus

We do research on science communication

At the Leibniz ScienceCampus KiSOC (Kiel Science Outreach Campus), 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

KiSOC is one of only seven Leibniz ScienceCampuses newly approved in 2016.  In these thematically focused ScienceCampuses, Leibniz institutions and universities work together as equal partners.In KiSOC, we are building on the long-standing close partnership between Kiel University as an university with great outreach expertise and the IPN.
