BR presents bioengineering program
DNA analysis in schools
PCR equipment, genetic engineering, enzyme reactions – it is still extremely rare to see pupils carrying out biotechnology experiments in school classrooms. This is made possible under a program offered by TUM and the Amgen Foundation and by the school network of the Schülerforschungszentrum Berchtesgadener Land, a research center for pupils. The broadcaster BR was on hand as a school class carried out a DNA analysis experiment.
Impressions from the pilot phase of TUM's new teaching format
Out of university, straight into practice: the 2023 Project Weeks

With the Project Weeks, TUM has therefore created a new teaching format in which students and teachers across disciplines, curricula and locations dedicate themselves to topics for which they are personally passionate and which are of great social relevance. The pilot phase took place at the beginning of this year – a successful start, as the participants report.
