Students and their families should be able to take part in inspiring science-related non-school activities close to where they live.

The children, young people and science programme is built up around four pathways: education, leisure time, vocation and evaluation and knowledge. 

By focusing on leisure, our aims are:

To make science a natural part of young people’s non-school activities and their family life. To foster a positive attitude in their families and social networks toward science and an awareness of science as a career opportunity.


New and innovative science and technology-related activities that can be incorporated into non-school programmes offered by the public-school system, youth organisations and the private sector. Citizen-science activities for the entire family offered by public and private-sector organisations, research institutes, science centres and the like.

Information about funding, including application information, is available on our Danish website.
