Jugend forscht - IVW supports students of Heinrich-Heine-Gymnasium


Since last year, Leibniz-Institut für Verbundwerkstoffe has been supporting two teams of students at the Heinrich-Heine-Gymnasium in the competition Jugend forscht/Schüler experimentieren. One of the projects immediately won the regional competition in Landau and was also awarded the special prize "Environmental Technology". With the support of Christoph Queck and Jannis Hüppauff, the two boys Max and Lennox developed a mobile floating hydroelectric power plant for crisis areas. By winning 1st place in the technology category, the two qualified for the state competition.

The project not only shows the potential of young talents, but also their commitment to a sustainable future.

The second project group is supervised by Liudmyla Gryshchuk and develops a pH-slip test. The main idea is to make foils from biomaterials (biocompatible polymers and dyes) that change color depending on the pH in the mouth.

This makes it possible to assess which drink is more harmful to the teeth. It can also be used to check whether young children have brushed their teeth well.

We wish Max and Lennox good luck for the state competition!
