Ulrike Englert is teaching physics and maths at the Willibald-Gluck-Gymnasium (WGG / MINT-EC school) in Neumarkt i.d. Oberpfalz, where she is also an academic advisor for 'Jugend forscht'. To support young people discovering their skills in STEM is a personal matter to her: This is why she motivates her students to take part in the scientific contests of 'Jugend forscht' and 'Vision-Ing21' or to join the study group 'learning by undertaking' that she initiated for especially motivated students. At the Willibald-Gluck-Gymnasium she also organsises the ‚physics at break‘. Furthermore she is a regular speaker at teacher trainings at the Upper Palatinate. In 2014 she took part in the German Science on Stage Festival in Berlin and qualified for the European Science on Stage festival 2015 in London. She also took part in the festival 2017 in Debrecen, Hungary. Since autumn 2015 she is hosting the Science on Stage regulars' table in Nuremberg.


What does being a teacher mean to you?

Next to the transfer of knowledge I want to push forward my students to find their own way, to train them thinking independently and to make them aware of their skills!


What do you think about Science on Stage - in 3 words?
