Offers for children and young people

What happens in an engine when it is ignited? How can a flame be formed? How high and how fast does a rocket fly? You can find out all this and much more about energy and space travel at the DLR_School_Lab Lampoldshausen/Stuttgart. The lab offers you the inspiring atmosphere of one of the largest research centres in Germany. You can also complete an internship at our institute in Stuttgart or take an exclusive look at our research laboratories on Girls' Day. We'll tell you how here.

At the DLR_School_Lab Lampoldshausen / Stuttgart, pupils can carry out exciting experiments on combustion and other research topics. Under expert guidance, the pupils conduct independent research into fundamental and pioneering experiments. The thematic focus of the experiments at the DLR_School_Lab is on space travel and rocket technology, as the researchers at the Lampoldshausen site are primarily concerned with the development and testing of rocket engines. By researching alternative propulsion concepts, the children and young people can find out how the means of transport of the future must be constructed in order to minimise the impact on the environment.

Experience our laboratories live on Girls Day

Equal opportunities are a top priority at DLR. The aim is to get more women interested in technology and science and to increase the proportion of women in research. That's why once a year, girls have the opportunity to experience everyday research at DLR. You can find out how to apply here.
