Online Glossary



Competitions provide interested students the opportunity to delve deeper into a project or subject area. This is particularly interesting for children and adolescents with higher cognitive abilities.

National competitions in Germany include, for instance, “Jugend forscht” (a science competition for students) as well as the Mathematics Olympiads (Mathematik Olympiaden) or the Federal President’s History Competition (“Geschichtswettbewerb des Bundespräsidenten”). Competitions are considered enrichment measures.
