Offer for primary classes
Especially for primary school teachers, we offer handouts to facilitate their access to appropriate experiments for this age group. They support in the preparation and follow-up of a visit to EXPERIMINTA and give suggestions for work-orders to the students.
The small MINT researchers
"The small MINT researchers" is a tour through EXPERIMINTA which was especially designed for children up to about eight years. Therefore, ten experiments have been selected, which can be handled by the children and the approach makes it possible for them to understand the scientific background. Most of the phenomena are known to the children from their daily lives.
The materials offer not only ideas for experimenting at the science center but a variety of suggestions for subsequent exploration.
The associated experimental stations in EXPERIMINTA are marked with a little owl.
The booklet "The small MINT researchers" can be downloaded at the bottom of this page, purchased in printed form for a nominal fee of 3 Euro at the EXPERIMINTA-box office or ordered via e-mail (3 Euro plus 4 Euro for handling and shipping).
Materials on bridges
The handout about bridges provides factual information and historical backgrounds to the bridge building. It shows different types of bridges and explains why bridges collapse sometimes. Of course, the associated experimental stations in EXPERIMINTA are introduced in detail.
Tipps to build simple bridges with the help of household materials and to experiment with the them complete the booklet.

Of course, instructions for exploring the mirror stations in EXPERIMINTA with primary-school pupils are included.
Many tips are offered to encourage further observations in school and everyday life as well as for experimenting in the classroom. Additional information for teaching and craft ideas to build some of the experiments on your own can be found in the brochure.

Space for your school class presentations
We have set up a room in our house that school classes can use for their own presentations. Here you can present your research or results from lessons and projects to a larger audience.
For a previously agreed period, we will make the work of your students available to all our visitors. Because many student works are very good and should not disappear in cabinets and drawers after grading.
Use the possibilty to present the works of your students to as many visitors as possible.
If you would like to use the room with your group or if you are not sure whether your project fits the EXPERIMINTA, simply write an e-mail to email@example.com.
