School Project about Healthy Food and the Immune System

Learning about nutrition in a school podcast

Junior researchers Dr. Anette Christ and Dr. Elisabeth Jurack at the University of Bonn receive 10,000 euros from the BMBF and "Wissenschaft im Dialog" for their idea: How do we eat in the 21st century? Bonn schoolchildren will soon be able to deal with this question together with scientists in a podcast. The biologists from the Cluster of Excellence impressed with their communication idea in the Germany-wide university competition "Show your research!" And are among the ten winning teams who will each receive 10,000 euros for implementing their ideas.

The aim of the competition launched by the "Science in Dialogue" initiative this year is to promote projects that deal with dwindling resources, environmental pollution and the climate crisis and to enter into dialogue with the public. The competition is thematically embedded in the Science Year 2020 | 21 - Bioeconomy. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports the project.

In their project "Nutrition in a School Podcast" the scientists are developing a podcast together with pupils from the Liebfrauen School in Bonn, in which the participants learn how the bioeconomy and a healthy diet are related. The young people don't keep their knowledge to themselves, but share it in eight self-produced podcast episodes on podcast platforms such as or Spotify.
