German noun genders are an important part of constructing grammatically accurate German sentences. A good understanding of them gives you the ability to properly conjugate adjectives, articles, and much more. Sadly, most of the genders need to be learned "auswendig" (by heart), but there are a couple of useful tricks you can use if you need to make a guess. Here are some groups of words that frequently use a neuter gender (warning - there are exceptions, natürlich):

Infinitives turned into nouns: das Spielen, das Tanzen, das Singen | the playing, the dancing, the singing

Common metals: das Silber, das Gold, das Kupfer | the silver, the gold, the copper

Young people: das Baby, das Mädchen, das Kind | the baby, the girl (young), the kid
