Promoting young talent for schoolchildren

Are you interested in technology? You wonder how cars are getting lighter and lighter and airplanes bigger and bigger? Would you like to experience research behind the scenes? Leibniz-IWT offers pupils many opportunities to get a taste of research topics for one or more days. We offer the following events:


Finja does research!

At Leibniz-IWT exciting research is carried out. Finja and her best friend Malik were also able to experience this. In the children's book "Finja forscht" by Isabell Harder, the two friends set out to find the owner of a mysterious powder - and visit researchers at Leibniz-IWT. The book was published by Schünemann Verlag and is suitable for children from the third grade upwards.


Nationwide Future Day for Girls and Boys - fully booked!

On the nationwide Future Day on 26 March from 09:00 - 15:00, Leibniz-IWT will open its doors to pupils from the 5th to the 8th grade. On this day girls and boys can get to know the technical areas in our institute. Under the motto "From the idea to the finished product" the kids will learn the way from the idea to the finished product and the exciting technology of 3D printing. With the help of 3D printing, they can realize their self-designed components within a few hours and hold them in their hands.

The workshop is unfortunately already fully booked.


School in colored states

In this collaborative project between the SFB "Coloured States" and the Wilhelm-Focke-Oberschule in Bremen, researchers from the SFB work together with teachers to develop teaching modules on the subject of technology and teach these modules in a profile class at the school. This profile class will be accompanied from grade 5 to grade 7 with 2 hours of lessons per week, an extension into grade 10 is planned. The SFB reports about the modules in its blog and will make the teaching modules available for download from spring 2020.
