Netzwerk Teilchenwelt is a Germany-wide outreach program comprising 30 universities and research labs. About 150 researchers are involved, bringing cutting edge science into the classroom. 3500 high school students each year take the opportunity to work with original data from HEP experiments in special masterclasses or to study cosmic particles with detectors. On advanced levels, motivated students continue to engage in research and attend workshops at CERN or conduct their research projects. Through a fellow program, highly motivated students are offered early contact with research groups, personal support, and further training. Activities are funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research as an integral part of HEP research. Within the current funding scheme, topics from hadron and nuclear physics are included and links to other projects are created which expand the range of target groups.
