German Immersion Day and Quiz Bowl

8:00am – 1:00pm

Storrs Campus
Dodd Center and Student Union

New this year, UConn ECE will host the first annual German Immersion Day and Quiz Bowl Competition. Teams of 1-4 UConn ECE German Students from across the state come together at the UConn Storrs Campus to participate in academic sessions with UConn German Department teaching assistants (TAs) in the morning and compete in a Jeopardy-style quiz in the afternoon. Academic sessions reflect the interests of the TAs and range from German literature, cinema, history, and culture to German cuisine and sports. UConn ECE German Faculty Coordinator and Professor of German, Anke Finger, moderates the afternoon quiz bowl, speaking only in German. All day long students have the opportunity to be culturally immersed in the language by practicing their speaking and pronunciation, tuning their ears to new voices speaking German, learning about German culture, and interacting with other German-speaking Connecticut high schoolers.
