School Contact Program (for School Classes)

For many years, scientists at our institute keep close contact with schools. School classes are welcome for site visits, demonstrations, or talks. In our School Contact Program, we have put together presentations, tour offers, and vivid demonstration experiments. The program will not only help to deepen specific scientific topics beyond the scope of the school education.

If you are interested in visiting our institute with your class, please contact the respective department or research group or the public relations office.
