Science Camp Electric Mobility

UPDATE: The Science Camp Electric Mobility will unfortunately not take place in 2020 due to the corona pandemic.

How will we move in the future? How does an electric motor work and where is the electricity stored to drive it? How does an autonomous car recognize when to stop? What kind of mobility do you wish for in the future?

These are the current questions you will be dealing with when you take part in the Science Camp with the new focus on electric mobility at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

In the Science Camp "Electric Mobility" you can learn about alternatives to the combustion engine and test those yourself. You can also discuss your vision of the mobility of the future or one of the current research fields with experts and present it in form of a short video. For this purpose, you can use various equipment such as animations and green screen as aids. Furthermore, the camp gives you the opportunity to meet new people and to deal with the topic of electric mobility in a creative way.

Leisure activities should not be neglected either. For example, a visit to the Europabad is planned, as well as a cosy barbecue in the evening. The participants of the Science Camp will stay overnight in a youth hostel in Karlsruhe during the whole week.
