15 students of grade 12 at the Carl-Orff-Gymnasium Unterschleißheim have successfully finished their “W-Seminar” at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum. They had to create posters and presentations to topics as ultracold neutrons, the electric dipole moment of the neutron or the radiation therapy using fast neutrons. Physics teacher Claus Hübl is impressed by the results: “It is impressive, how the students could make progress with the help of a scientist.” The researchers of MLZ also had their benefits from the cooperation with the students: “It was fun to see, how the students could be inspired by recent research topics”, says Dr. Andreas Frei, who had supervised six students. The W-Seminar is to be repeated with different topics.
