Put on the protective glasses and the lab coat and off you go right into the middle of the natural sciences!
Under the guidance of a teacher and with the help of pupils from the adjoining Freiherr-vom-Stein-Gymnasium (German secondary school) or the Elisabeth-Lüders-Berufskolleg (vocational college), pupils undertake experiments in chemistry or physics. In three to four small groups and without any time pressure, you will learn that the natural sciences become exciting through practical experiments. In this way, the hands-on and experimental laboratory maxilab lures the participants into an interesting and exciting world.
This is an impulse to take a fun approach to scientific questions beyond the normal school routine.
maxilab – A laboratory for school children in the Maxipark! Why?
No interest in chemistry and physics? But natural sciences are fun! In the maxilab, we will arouse your curiosity about fascinating phenomena. Whether you go up in the air or create your own perfume – there are many ways to discover scientific contexts.
Every day in the media, we hear how important it is to inspire children at an early age and promote understanding. They report on intelligent materials and technical innovations but also on the general shortage of skilled workers.
That’s where we come in. Where, if not in the popular Glass Elephant of Maximilian Park, can children have fun experimenting and discovering the wonders of technology? This is how the foundation stone is laid at an early stage to whet the appetite – for chemistry or physics!
Natural sciences have a future!
It is impossible to imagine our everyday life without natural sciences and they can be found everywhere. They play a key role in our future. Whether we are looking at coloured building blocks or artificial hip joints, modern media, traffic planning or a tsunami early warning system, bionics or nanoscience’s – the aim is to develop a “feeling” for scientific topics.
