Also in light of limited finances, cooperation with suitable partners contributes significantly to the good outcome of a project. Their expertise, experience and motivation are often the key to success, and help to secure it.
We are therefore very happy to have found support from such partners for the DLR_School_Lab and extend to them our sincere thanks for their effective collaboration.
The GenaU network (Gemeinsam für naturwissenschaftlich-technischen Unterricht - roughly "United for Science-Technology Instruction") consists of 15 student labs in Berlin and Brandenburg. DLR_School_Lab Berlin is a member of this network, which develops innovative concepts for science instruction in cooperation with various partners. The GenaU network gives students a taste of day-to-day science activities and stimulates their enthusiasm for the natural sciences.
As an experienced developer and producer of modern laser technologies from the UV to the NIR range, LTB Lasertechnik Berlin is able to provide suitable tools not only for scientific research but also for industrial use. By supplying a dye laser experiment set-up and a nitrogen laser pump source, an experimental system has been created for gaining basic insights into laser technology through practical, hands-on use.
