"Jugend forscht": Two young students conduct parts of their project in our labs and win the first price Berlin-wide!

During the last weeks, Niklas Hausmann, BIG-NSE fellow and PhD student in the group of Prof. Driess, TU-Berlin, has been helping two students from the "Romain-Rolland-Gymnasium" ("RoRo"), situated in the Berlin district of Reinickendorf, further develop their “Jugendforscht” project in an attempt to win the next competition level.

The two RoRo students, Florian Krebs und Anna-Noemi Lotz, already submitted a primary version of their project, which title is “Solare Wasserstoffgewinnung – Energie für die Zukunft?”, some months ago. With this version, they were already able to get the first prize of the “Jugendforscht” competition on “local level” (“Berlin Mitte”).

Yesterday March 27, they won at the next level of the competition, the regional one (Berlin). It means that they will now compete on the national level and present a further improved version of their project on the next competitive event, the Bundeswettbewerb 2019, taking place in Chemnitz from May 16 to 19.

We wish Florian, Anna-Noemi and Niklas all the best for the next competition level and keep you informed about the outcome of this collaboration!
