Language of instruction English
* To be able to relate research questions to the appropriate scientific theory.
* To be able to relate scientific theory to a research experiment.
* To learn to setup a scientific research experiment.
* To familiarize students with the executing of scientific research experiments.
* To be able to perform basic laboratory experiments in a safe manner.
* To be able to analyse and process the data.
* To learn to report and communicate the outcomes in a scientific manner.
The ultimate goal of the Science Lab course is to give students hands-on lab experience in chemistry, biology, physics and engineering. Furthermore the course wants to introduce the entire process behind scientific research. Students will first have to identify their research question and design their experiment while keeping safety, sustainability and time management in mind. In a next stage the experiment will be initialized and executed in a scientific and safe way. During the last step of the process they have to critically analyse the generated data and communicate their findings in a scientific report and/or presentation.
