At Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, you are invited to investigate the mysteries of the seas, the secrets of sea ice and the diversity of life at the bottom of the ocean.
Space for new Knowledge – the "physik.begreifen"-Labs
The main concern of the school labs at the Deutsche Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY is to make physical insights come to life. DESY has two research facilities in two locations: Hamburg and Zeuthen (Brandenburg) near Berlin.
The "Life Science Lab" at the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum DKFZ) in Heidelberg particularly stimulates talented and interested pupils. They are called Lab-Students and they have one goal: they want to find the answers to many of the big questions.
Unimpeded Learning: Aviation and Aerospace, Energy and Transportation Research
To fathom the mysteries of flying, to set satellites on their course, to fetch comets into the laboratory, to employ ciliates as miniature astronauts, to breath life into robots, to work with radiant tools and to look deep into the heart of a gas turbine.
At GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel topics in marine biology, chemistry, physics and geology offer themselves for active exploration projects by young people. Anything but "dry" content...!
Sunny times for all those who want to take a brief excursion into the world of physics research: At the Helmholtz-Centre for Materials and Energy you can learn interesting stuff about the research on solar energy and the structure of matter.
DeltaX – Experimenting like the Researchers of Tomorrow
Whether magnetism, optics, materials research or radioactivity - DeltaX school lab offers space for science-related experiments and topics that are not always possible in this way in the classroom. Our offers are directed to all inquisitive students starting from grade five.
To reckognize and analyze current problems of the environment, to find and implement solutions for them and to strategically plan what could be our energy sources in the future - all of these are topics in environmental research. A visit to the UFZ school lab offers a glimpse into this line of research.
What do geoscientists do anyway? At Helmholtz Centre Potsdam, the German Research Centre for Geosciences, the members of staff thought of quite a few things to offer future scientists a glimpse into their work.
Goethe has his Mephisto say to Faust: "Blood is a juice with curious properties". At the "Life Science Learning Lab" which runs one of two school labs at Max-Delbrück-Centre for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association, school groups are able to experience just how gripping biology lessons close to practical issues can be.
Vision: Electrical energy from a fusion reactor. We imitate the sun! Quite exciting what researchers find out about the smallest particles of matter. Science shows for children and youth, visits at the sites at Garching near Munich and Greifswald are possible options.
