What will tomorrow’s energy supply look like? How is sustainable fuel created? How can electromobility be implemented in a meaningful way? And what does “carbon cycle” actually mean?
We were able to bring these and other exciting questions closer to twelve students on October 25 as part of this year’s “Querbeet” Week at the IEC. From investigations of synthetic fuels in the laboratory, to applied computational models for sustainable chemical processes, to the real process in our large-scale test facilities, the participants were able to gain an insight into the diverse field of work of an engineer.
Would you also like to try out what it feels like to be a student and look over the shoulders of our scientists? – Then join us at the next Pupils University during the summer vacation!
This month, in autumnal Freiberg, we welcomed two schools to the IEC for a project day.
On October 11, 2022, the Gymnasium Dresden-Plauen was our guest and was introduced the topics of our institute by our presentation “Alternative Fuels”. Afterwards, the 22 students had the opportunity to prove their knowledge in our energy quiz. The day was rounded off with a guided tour of our large-scale test facilities.
Just one day later, we welcomed 15 students from the Gymnasium Marienberg . In the lecture “Fuels of tomorrow”, all participants were able to take a look at the future of mobility. The subsequent “carbon knowledge tour” along our carbon trail presented both the carbon problem and the solution-oriented technologies we are researching here at the institute.
Overall, all participants were able to gain an impression of the major problems of today, but at the same time the possible solutions of tomorrow.
If your school is still looking for a suitable destination for your project day, please contact us! We can also offer you a suitable program.
