Out of the Classroom - into the Lab!

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is one of Europe's largest and most modern research institutions. Here is where the aircraft of the future are being developed and pilots trained, rocket engines tested and images of distant planets analysed. In addition, ca. 8,000 DLR staff members are investigating next-generation high-speed trains, environmentally responsible methods of generating energy, and much more ...

At DLR_School_Lab TU Hamburg-Harburg children and young people are taken along on a stimulating journey into the world of aviation. At the civilian aviation industry’s third largest location worldwide the subject of flight is of course fundamentally important. But Hamburg also happens to be one of Europe’s largest harbour cities, so ship technology is also a topic at DLR_School_Lab. Students conduct their own exciting experiments, discovering in the process that technology and science are fascinating and that it’s fun to find out how an airplane weighing tons can lift off from the ground, or how ships can get to their destinations despite storms and heavy seas.
