What could make solar cells cheaper and more powerful? Can hydrogen be produced with less energy? What do new materials have to be like to make them lightweight but also sturdy and versatile?
We’re looking for the next generation of researchers!

At DLR_School_Lab TU Dresden you can find out how researchers at DLR and TU Dresden tackle current problems in the fields of energy and mobility. And there’s an unusual aspect: here you yourselves are the researchers! Independent experimenting is the approach! So don’t expect to follow a ready-made set of instructions, since you’ll need to plan your own experiments based on a specific research assignment. What key issues need resolving on the way to a good solution? How can they be investigated in experiments? Are your ideas confirmed by the experiment? Find out, and then present your results – more or less like at a little professional gathering – to your classmates. Do you have the makings of an upcoming researcher?
