German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed current European issues as she visited the Thomas Mann Gymnasium in Berlin on Tuesday.

Merkel's visit took place on the occasion of the EU Project Day, the chancellor's 2007 initiative to interest the youths in the European Union, which since then has seen many German politicians visiting schools nationwide.

Upon Merkel's arrival, the pupils took selfies with the German chancellor. The pupils then presented several group projects to the chancellor. The presentation was followed by a podium discussion on a number of European issues, including Brexit.

When speaking to the press, Merkel said that "we talked about Europe. And I could tell that there is a great interest in European issues, and what it means for my life."

She went on to say, "we talked about the climate protection, the Internet, migration - I believe that's the topic. And of course, we also talked about what the digital education will look like in the future. And we all have to work on that as well. "
