Schedule and test sequence

An experiment day at DLR_School Lab RWTH Aachen University last about six hours. We usually start at 9 a.m., but most of the time we are flexible.

The day begins with a lecture. Subsequently, four of the six experiments pupils are carried out one after the other. Each experiment takes about 60 minutes. The pupils work in groups, ideally with six participants, so that everyone has the opportunity to participate activeley in the experiment. After the second experiment there will be a 45-minute break. The day ends with a final discussion.

During your visit, our scientists and students will be happy to answer and questions you may have about the content of our website, as well as your choice of studies and career.

For school classes, working groups or junior academies with thematic focuses, we can vary the number and duration of experiments and supplement them with specialist lectures. Please contact us for further information. In addition, there is the possibility for foreign guests to carry out the experiments in English.

There are no costs for attending the DLR_School Labs.
