The DLR_School_Labs:



DLR_School_Lab Berlin
Surfaces in 3D - how do you produce them? How can the way to school be made safe? GPS via satellite - how fast are we moving and how far have we gone? How do you get electricity from hydrogen? Why are solar cells really like filling stations for electricity? Together we can find the answers to these questions at the DLR_School_Lab Berlin.

DLR_School_Lab Braunschweig
What are planes going to look like in the future? How can train accidents be avoided? What requirements do air traffic controllers and pilots have to meet? How does a helicopter fly? How can traffic noise be reduced? You can find answers to these and other interesting questions at DLR_School_Lab Braunschweig. For one exciting day you yourselves carry out the research.

 DLR_School_Lab TU Dortmund
"Chaos in the Solar System", "Robotics and Virtual Worlds", "The Road Vehicles of the Future" – These are just a few of the subjects dealt with at DLR_School_Lab TU Dortmund. Here children and young people turn into researchers and explorers by carrying out various experiments themselves and by informally learning under expert guidance. (Image source: TU Dortmund)

DLR_School_Lab TU Hamburg-Harburg
Why does a bird have to flap its wings? And why shouldn't an airplane do it? How can it be avoided? Where does turbine noise come from and how can it be kept out of the cabin? How many boreholes are there in an Airbus, who makes them all, how is it done, and why? These are the kinds of questions you can tackle experimentally at DLR_School_Lab TU Hamburg-Harburg.
