DLR_School_Lab RWTH Aachen

C IMA RWTH Schüler Arbeitsgruppe

What are the flight characteristics of a "quadrocopter"? How does a driving simulator work and what can modern driving assistance systems do? Complicated and exciting topics that are illustrated and simply explained to children and young people at DLR_School_Lab at RWTH Aachen University using experiments with practical examples.

The most diverse topics come together here, because DLR is one of Germany's largest research institutions and RWTH Aachen University is one of Germany's most modern technical universities - a great combination for young talents who want to try their hand at research up close.

Through hands-on experiments, students are introduced to questions from aerospace, energy and transportation research - our focus is on robotics and artificial intelligence. In our diverse and varied experiments, the students deal with the following overarching questions, among others: What is artificial intelligence and how does it get into machines? How can robots learn and does consciousness need a body? Using humans as a role model - do we want robots to be human?

No prior knowledge is necessary for our courses and we explicitly invite students of all school types to participate.

Schools can register for a visit to DLR_School_Lab RWTH Aachen via the homepage or directly with us. Our team will be happy to visit you at your school with exciting experiments in tow.
