Educational Projects

At ZARM we offer a wide range of educational projects in the fields of aerospace, mechanical engineering and physical sciences. Within the framework of your teaching project, you can deepen your knowledge and put it into practice. The focus and scope of the project work can be determined by you - from the detailed development and investigation of technical subsystems to fundamental scientific research. Join us and work in state-of-the-art engineering laboratories - such as our drop tower - or on our computing facilities.

This project aims at designing a culture system for cyanobacteria that could be deployed on the Martian surface. No prior biology knowledge is required.more...
