LeibnizLAB


Do you want your students to experience a big bang in class?
Do y
ou want your pupils to get to know the fascination of science and experiment a little themselves? The Leibniz Lab team will be happy to help you and will come to your class with the experiment bus!

WHAT IS THE LEIBNIZ LAB?

We bring exciting scientific experiments from the STEM subjects to schools. This allows your students to experiment and get to know scientific work.

In this they will be expertly accompanied by research staff of the Leibniz University Hannover and your lesson will be perfectly supplemented.

We offer the following Leibniz Labs aimed at specific target groups:

TOPIC AREAS OF THE LEIBNIZ LAB

  • Leibniz JuniorLab - Offers for Primary Schools

    Our LeibnizLab also has offers for pupils in primary school:
     

    To the Leibniz JuniorLab

  • Magnetism - Magnetic Fields in Everyday Life and Science (Grades 5-7)

    The LeibnizLab Magnetism engages with topics from (Electro-)magnetism, hovering objects to superconductors. Magnetic fields and Opportunities to play with them are the major topic of this Lab.

    Magnetism is an everyday phenomena, which is often underestimated. But how do magnets and electromagnets function? Which materials can be magnetized and why do magnets also interact with nonmagnetic materials? What does this have to do with ICEs, hovering graphite and steaming superconductors? The Leibniz Lab Magnetism will be get to the bottom of these and further questions with fascinating experiments.  

  • Physics - Colour-Games with the whole Light Spectrum (Grades 5-7)

    The Leibniz-JuniorLab-Classic for older pupils - the Leibniz Lab Physics. It will dive into the world of colour-games and refraction of light.

    Light is a phenomena which we encounter every day and whose meaning we are often not entirely aware of.
    But what is light actually and how is light different from other radiation? The Leibniz Lab Physics will get to the bottom of these and other exciting questions. This includes colourful experiments on the spectral dispersion of light. Additionally, the phenomena of refraction of light and total reflexion are analysed and it is being looked for application examples in nature and technology.  

  • Civil Engineering - hydraulic engineering and shipping (Grades 5-7)

    Water is the major topic at Leibniz Lab Civil Engineering. Exciting experiments will focus on ships, offshore wind turbines and drinking water supply.


    One of the four major fields of civil engineering is hydraulic engineering. This covers all areas from the planning of drinking water supply to entire offshore wind power plants, including the conception, design and manufacture of hydraulic engineering. The Leibniz Lab Civil Engineering deals playfully and experimentally with shipbuilding and explains the most important physical and mathematical properties of ships. Through experiments, the students can experience for themselves why a ship can swim at all and what the prerequisites are for this.  

  • Biochemistry - Glowing Nature (Grades 8-10)

    Everything that mysteriously glows under UV-lighting is the topic of the Leibniz Lab Biochemistry. The function and application of the luminous phenomenon will be discussed. Fluorescence and luminescence make things and living beings glow brightly in the dark. Even glowing cells? Such things actually exist in nature.

    But can everyday items glow? How the whole thing functions and which use this phenomena has for science and living being themselves, will be explained by the Leibniz Lab Biochemistry. We will organize the lesson with exciting experiments all about ultraviolet light and an interactive lecture.  

  • Meteorology - The influence of Clouds on Climate change (Grades 11-13)

    Answers on the thrilling questions of climate change is being offered by the Leibniz Lab Meteorology. It is being explained how clouds form and which influence they have on the radiation balance of the earth.


    Climate change is the perhaps biggest challenge of our time. But how do clouds form and which effect do they have on the radiation balance of the earth? How does this relate to exhaust emissions of incineration and which role do aerosols play? To all these questions the Leibniz Lab Meteorology has an answer and thus allows an insight into the big and fascination topic of “climate”.
