I3 “Have you ever wondered"

The I3 "Have you ever wondered" is a project conducted by students and supervised by teachers. Students conduct and film interviews with STEM professionals to find out more about their profession. This helps many students understand what jobs in the STEM field look like. Because STEM covers a wide range of fields, you can cover many different professions with the same degree. 

The Project is split into different teams: Communication, Production and Interview. Each team has a different range of responsibilities. The communication team is responsible for finding people to interview and inviting them to come to the school for an interview. The Production team is responsible for the filming and editing of the interviews. The interview team is responsible for the creation of questions and then interviewing the invited guests in front of the Camera.

The Project received a funding of €7000 from the Dr. Hans-Rigel Stiftung, speaking for its importance.

A participation in this project counts for Creativity and Service for the CAS prgramme.

The Drop Tower Project

The Drop Tower Project (DroPS) programme was initiated by ZARM in 2014 and allows pupils from secondary schools to carry out scientific and technological experiments under microgravity in the ZARM drop tower. This is done in cooperation with the DLR_School_Lab and Hackerspace Bremen e.V.  The DroPS project has an important impact on the student's assessment by the schools, especially in the STEM subjects. It is also accepted in the "Jugend forscht" programme. Every year in autumn, this programme opens a call for proposals.

This year, three ISB physics students from Grade 11 are participating and are investigating the surface tension of water in net-zero gravity. This counts as Creativity for their CAS.

May 2022

One of the Grade 11 students does gymnastics twice a week for a total of four to five hours per week. She's participating successfully in multiple competitions in the Category “Leistungsturnen” (Competitive gymnastics). The club is considered a very challenging opponent in competitions and currently has a number of gymnasts competing at international level.

This is counted as part of the Activity Strand of the CAS programme.
