The project TeachING is intended to rouse interest in young students for the questions of natural science. The goal is to inspire youth to undertake a corresponding course of studies. Using a cooperation concept of the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) with various schools, students are given an understanding of the job profile of an engineer. For this purpose, two-day workshops are offered. On the first day, carried out under the motto “efficient production management,” the students develop a production process, thereby learning the fundamentals of lean production in a playful and engaging way. The second day takes place at the machine tools laboratory. There, a tour of the RWTH demonstration factory is on the agenda, as well as a digital factory design. Of course questions on the course of studies at RWTH can also be taken.
