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 analyzed. 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 Bremen the focus is on aerospace: How can people and technology be put into space and what space conditions have to be taken into account there? How can Earth be monitored from space and how can distant planets, moons and asteroids be investigated?
At the Bremen Institute of Aerospace Systems, following a comprehensive and systematic approach is crucial. Using this integrated approach, young people can even conduct a complete Mars mission at DLR_School_Lab in a team effort, from initial rocket launch and descent onto the Red Planet to robot control and specimen analysis. They discover in the process how mission success depends on the smooth interaction of all systems.
The hands-on experiments on offer come from three areas:
The students investigate in these experiments such phenomena as vacuum conditions, microgravity, and space weather. They deal with infrared, radar and attitude regulation and carry out experiments on propulsion technology, landing navigation, robotics and sensor systems. These experiments can also be conducted separately.
These intriguing hands-on experiments acquaint students with ongoing research projects at the German Aerospace Center and lead to fascinating insights into the world of natural science and technology.
