Guided Labtours

You are interested in visiting our Institute? We are happy to arrange individually labtour programs according to your special interests. The maximum group size is ten participants. Usually guided labtours take about two hours. After a short introduction into our research topics we visit three or four laboratories where the scientists present and explain their work.

Dresden Science Night

The best way to look behind the scenes and to gain deeper insights into our research is to visit the IFW during the Dresden Science Night. It takes place every summer shortly before summer vacations. Use this opportunity to visit us.

The next Dresden Science Night is scheduled to take place on June 30, 2023.

Schule trifft Wissenschaft

Für Schulklassen führen wir individuelle Institutsführungen durch, um für den jeweiligen Lehrplan relevante Inhalte zu berücksichtigen. Die Führungen eignen sich zur Ergänzung des Physik- und Chemieunterrichts v.a. ab Klasse 10, insbesondere zu den Themen Magnetismus, Supraleitung, Transmissions-Elektronen-Mikroskopie, Neue Modifikationen des Kohlenstoffs, Chemische Analytik von Festkörpern und Chemischen Elementen (Palette der Metalle). Die Veranstaltung dauert etwa zwei Stunden.


We take part at the JUNIORDOCTOR Program

The JUNIORDOCTOR Program gives students in the 3rd to 12th grade an impression of research, engineering, politics and culture in Dresden. We also want to show students what there is to research and explore in our institute.

We take part at Girls'Day

On 27 April 2023 is Girls' Day again. The main purpose of Girls' Day is to give girls an understanding of professions that are still dominated by men. Registration for our program takes place on the official Girls'Day website.
