School meets Research

Above all, natural science means curiosity. It drives scientists in all places and times to move from the known to the unknown. It is our aim to awaken this curiosity in the participants, to show students that experimenting is exciting and fun. Students experience how experimental work today is implemented in natural sciences and how findings are made by carrying out experiments in a planned manner. Our laboratories are equipped with research-related equipment, the experimental work is professionally supervised by our lecturers, who all are scientists or experts in their scientific field.

During the Corona pandemic, we are conducting experimental courses and online offerings in accordance with regulatory requirements. To ensure that all participants remain healthy, we provide clear hygiene rules for a safe and smooth daily routine.
