Winter project day at the IEC

On December 14, we had the pleasure to welcome the Gymnasium Altenberg and the BSZ Plauen in snow-covered Freiberg for the end of the year.

The total of 28 students got to the bottom of exciting questions about the future during our workshop on the carbon cycle and tested their knowledge in various quiz rounds.

In the subsequent lecture on plant design and the supplementary tour of our large-scale test facilities, supported by employees of our industrial partner Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz (CAC), the participants gained an insight into the varied everyday life of an engineer.

So far this year, almost 500 students have explored our institute. We are very pleased about the great interest in our topics and offers!

German-Czech Project Day at IEC

A special highlight this year was the German-Czech project day on November 30. Students from Gymnasium Burgstädt and Plauen got to know students from the Educhem-Gymnasium in Litvinov/Czech Republic on a cross-border knowledge tour.

The 70 potential young scientists went through a diverse program of lectures, workshops and various guided tours in groups during the day at the IEC. These included our workshop on the carbon cycle, our carbon discovery trail, and tours of our laboratories and large-scale experimental facilities. Communication among each other was smoothly handled in English. All in all, the day met with lively interest from all participants not only in the technical aspects, but also in the cross-border encounters.

We hope to see one or the other face again soon – then as students in the lecture hall.
