The Join_In_Lab, the Citizen Science Laboratory Jena, is an open space for learning, teaching and collaboration in the context of Citizen Science projects at the DLR Institute for Data Science.
As a meeting place of science and society we are striving to actively engage citizens in the scientific process – from start to finish. Our mission is to not only progress in our scientific endeavors, but to use the means of modern science communication in order to inspire as many people as possible along the way. To this end, we are planning a variety of events such as open workshops, teacher training, regular science meet-ups or science slams, while also providing modern infrastructure within our premises.
The Join_In_Lab Jena can be found in the city center of Jena, in the same rooms as the DLR_School_Lab Jena. The latter will open its‘ doors to the public in 2021. Here, we provide insights into fascinating science topics researched at the DLR to students aged 10 and above. The close connection between both labs is at the heart of our sustainable strategy for the promotion of young talents. By this, we hope to further equal opportunity within the communities of our purview.
