The Excellence Cluster deals with questions we have all asked ourselves at some time when observing the sky on a clear and starry night.
- How did the Universe develop?
- As well as our galaxies, our home star the sun, the planets and life on earth?
- What forces act in the cosmos, how did matter form and how does matter behave?
- How does the future of our Universe look?
We want to share the fascination of the Universe and relevant research assignments with students at school. We want to give students an impression of how exciting science can be when we take off our “school glasses”.
With our teacher training and students’programmes, we pursue the goal of bringing living science into the classroom. We also do things the other way round by bringing pupils to scientists in the laboratory and the observatory.
We regularly provide further training for secondary schools. An additional integral part of our school programme is the Lecture Pool. In this search engine teachers will find interesting lectures to complement school lessons and can make direct contact with the speakers.
