LabScout – All Projects at a Glance

With LabScout, you can discover quickly and easily which projects are offered in our Baylabs. The projects are organized according to target age groups. You will find more information and can register your class on the Internet site of the respective Baylab.

Berlin

Chemistry – seperating substances (Elementary + Secondary I)

One day at Baylab and suddenly you’ll understand how exciting science can be. What is inside of Curry powder? How cold is ice? Why is Cola just as sour as vinegar? And how do I become a scientist?

Leverkusen

Bees and honey (Elementary school)

Why are bees so important for us and for the environment? Why do bees pollinate flowers? How many flowers do they have to visit to make one jar of honey? What is honey made of? What is the ideal environment for bees? more

The invisible power of plants (Secondary I)

How can plants feed us? How do they produce nutrients and what do they need to do that? How does photosynthesis work? What are microbes, and what do they do? Are they friends or foes?

The answers to these questions and more are provided by our Baylab project called “The invisible power of plants.” It is open to all students in school grades 5 to 7.

Enzymes – Catalysts of Life (Secondary I)

Why do enzymes accelerate chemical reactions? What makes them ideal target molecules for medicines? What role do they play in cancer research? The Baylab project "Enzymes - Catalysts of life" answers these questions and many more. Secondary school children (ages 12-15) are invited to take part. more

Controllable Molecules – Trojans of Medicine (Secondary I + II)

What are trojans? How can molecules be controlled accurately? And why can some liquids flow upwards? The Baylab project "Controllable molecules – Trojans of medicine" helps answer these questions. Secondary school children (ages 14 to 17) are invited to take part. more

Genetic Makeup and Health - Methods in Biotechnology (Secondary II)

How can you isolate the DNA found in your mouth? How can you recognize genetic variations? And how can it be used to produce a genetic fingerprint? These questions are answered at Baylab. Various experiments allow the students to discover important fundamentals of biomedical research and use these principles to identify diseases. All students in grades 11 to 13 are invited to participate. more

Monheim

Canola – a Plant with many Secrets I (Secondary I + II)

Experience science up close, make your own biofuel and salad oil and gain insights into the genetic makeup of plants - the students experience all of this for a day at Baylab, where they get to know a new and exciting side of the natural sciences and agriculture. The aim is also to heighten young people's awareness of the challenges facing agriculture in the future. The student project is suitable for students in grades eight through ten at any type of school. more

Canola – a Plant with many Secrets II (Secondary I + II)

Experience science up close, make your own biofuel and salad oil and gain insights into the genetic makeup of plants - the students can do this for a day at Baylab, where they get to know a new and exciting side of the natural sciences and agriculture. The aim is also to heighten young people's awareness of the challenges facing agriculture in the future. The student project is suitable for students in grades 11 to 13 at any type of school. more

Wuppertal

The Children’s Chemistry Laboratory - Hot Ice and Liquid Air

Hot ice and liquid air? Red cabbage juice and black marker in an amazing array of colors? 3rd to 5th grade students can experience all that and much more at Baylab in Wuppertal. Age-appropriate experiments allow the children to discover the amazing world of science and record their results in a lab book.

The Chemistry and Nature Student Laboratory - Separate and Identify Materials (Secondary I)

How does the coffee get into the cup? And what is really in the spice jar? Young researchers in the 8th and 10th grades investigate these and other seemingly everyday facts at Baylab health. The students break seemingly unremarkable things down into their surprising components and discover what it means to work scientifically.

In the Realm of Molecular Biology (Secondary II)

Making the invisible visible - that is the task facing students in grades 11 to 13 as they explore the realm of the molecules of life at Baylab. Under expert guidance, they isolate and conduct scientific work on the genetic material (DNA) of an onion.

Vacation Science Week (8-10 years)

Baylab also opens its doors to young researchers during school vacation periods. Children between the ages of eight and 12 can experiment to their hearts’ content at the Natural Sciences Vacation Laboratory during the first and last week of the Easter, summer and fall vacations. The program includes experiments in chemistry, biology and physics.

Vacation Researcher Days (13-16 years)

Vacation Researcher Days at Baylab allows youths between the ages of 13 and 16 to take part in a three-day program of experiments in the fields of chemistry, biology and physics. Bergische Universität Wuppertal is our partner for the physics portion. This program is held during the Easter and fall vacation periods.
