TUM-GS Family Event: Weekend Scavenger Hunt at Wildpark Poing

Kurse & Veranstaltungen |

The TUM Graduate School (TUM-GS) supports family-friendly structures that help doctoral candidates balance family, career and research. With our Family Event Series especially designed for doctoral candidates with (small) child/ren, we want to support networking between candidates with child/ren by offering enjoyable child-friendly leisure activities.

At our second family event, TUM doctoral candidates as well as postdocs, international guest scientists and students with child/-ren are warmly invited to a family scavenger hunt at the beautiful Wildpark Poing about the habitat, history and care of indigenous wildlife! Wildpark Poing is an open wildlife park in the greater Munich area where you can experience many indigenous wildlife animals face to face. During the scavenger hunt, we will stroll through the park, look for clues and solve tasks prepared for us.

Bring your whole family! Of course, doctoral candidates without children are also welcome to join!
