What are the future options for securing our energy supply?

This will be one of the central questions of the camp. There you can work out your own small projects on this question, setting your own priorities and shaping them through experiments, research, models or interviews. Among other things, you will have the opportunity to talk to scientists and look over their shoulders at their workplace. On excursions and visits (e.g. to the Bioliq facility on the northern campus of the KIT) we would like to give you an insight into the current state of research. At the end of the camp week we ask you to present your results, ideas, and experiences by means of a short video or a lecture.

Apart from the possibility to get to know a new topic, you will also have the opportunity to spend your free time. For example, we want to visit the Europabad or have a barbecue in the evening. You can also design and test a water wheel yourself at the water wheel building competition.
