How do you program a robot? How do you make gummy bears? How does a DNA analysis help track down criminals? Exciting experiments await school classes and kindergarten groups in eight fully equipped labs at experimenta. Over 60 different lab courses for children of all ages address topics found in the school curriculum prescribed by Baden-Wurttemberg and present phenomena from the fields of biology, chemistry, physics to computer science and technology in a way that is both knowledgeable and interactive. Variety is also important in the cooking lab in which both frying pans and pots as well as 3D food printers are used. There is also much for adults to discover - for example, the secrets of molecular gastronomy. Tracking down the new and unknown is the aim of the student research center that also provides an ideal platform for young scientists and their first scientific endeavors.

The Maker Space is also a special installation - an open platform that invites visitors to try their skills in development and design, programming and discussion. The relaxed atmosphere is similar to a start-up and encourages creativity. The technical equipment ranges from 3D printers to laser cutters and CNC mill to the video studio and a woodshop and also provides enough room for fashion design and textile processing.

Our laboratory courses


Faszination Magnetismus

Die Kinder gehen in spannenden Experimenten dem Thema Magnetismus nach und erkunden, wie ein Magnet funktioniert. Jedes Kind stellt zudem sein eigenes Angelspiel her.


In der Holzwerkstatt lernen die Kinder drei verschiedene heimische Holzarten näher kennen und jedes Kind stellt ein eigenes Werkstück aus Holz her.

Im Regenbogenland

In diesem Kurs beschäftigen wir uns mit dem Naturphänomen des Regenbogens, das den Kindern aus Ihrer Lebenswelt bekannt ist.


Die Natur steckt voller Farben. Mit Mörser, Pistill und Wasser lösen wir Farbstoffe aus unterschiedlichen Pflanzen und färben Stoffstreifen ein, aus denen jedes Kind im Kurs ein kunstvolles Bild webt.

Pflanzen unter der Lupe

Die Kinder nehmen in diesem Kurs den Aufbau einer Pflanze und deren Bestandteile genauer unter die Lupe. In spannenden Experimenten entdecken sie z. B., wie Pflanzen trinken. Jedes Kind bastelt zudem eine Wackelblume.

Schwimmen und Sinken

Wir experimentieren rund um das Thema Schwimmen und Sinken und basteln mit den Kindern ein Fantasie-Wassertier.
