Science Camp Electrical Engineering

What will the technology of the future look like? How do I get from the idea to functioning technology? How are things regulated and controlled in the age of automation? How does a "SmartHome", for example, know when to switch on the blackout? How can I teach autonomous vehicles to recognize obstacles?

If you visit the Science Camp at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, you will deal with these exciting questions about the possibilities of regulating and controlling electrical engineering.

At the Science Camp, for example, you can learn about alternatives to the combustion engine and test them yourself. You can also formulate your own vision of the technologies of the future. You can implement your own ideas, create your own constructions and build a "prototype" for your idea using the materials available (e.g. the open source electronics platform Arduino). You can work mechanically as well as electrotechnically and discuss your ideas directly with the experts. Furthermore, the camp allows you to meet new people and to deal with the topic of electrical engineering in a creative way.

Science Camp Electrical Engineering

02.08. - 06.08.2021

for young people from 14-16 years

The Science Camp takes place as a one-week workshop. We want to work together on projects or explore KIT and institutes from 9 am to about 6 pm.

The costs for catering (lunch), if necessary excursion, experimental material (components, microcontrollers, etc.) are 160,- €.


Information about registration

Maximum number of participants: 12 students

Registration takes place online via the website of the Pupils' Academy.

The KIT will inform you directly about the acceptance or rejection of your application. Please transfer the fee to the Schülerakademie only afterwards!


The Science Camp Electromobility is offered in cooperation with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and is carried out in close cooperation with the Center for Energy and the Schülerakademie Karlsruhe e.V..
