The “DeltaX” Students’ Laboratory Promotes the Desire to Do Research
The DeltaX students’ laboratory was officially opened in Helmholtz Centre Dresden-Rossendorf at the end of October 2019 by Saxony’s Minister of Culture Christian Piwarz (CDU) and Dresden’s Lord Mayor Dirk Hilbert (FDP).
Institutes, companies and museums in Dresden expect that the laboratory will promote students’ interest in doing research. At the same time, DeltaX serves as a next-generation incubator for scientific institutions and high-tech businesses in the Saxon state capital. The laboratory is lavishly equipped: from lasers and biological incubators to gas chromatographs, state-of-the-art equipment is available for young researchers to use in their experiments.
“The new building offers the very finest technology”, says DeltaX’s director Dr. Matthias Streller. Students now have totally new opportunities to conduct experiments in chemistry and molecular biology under genuine laboratory conditions. In the near future, more than 3,000 students will learn and experiment in DeltaX, which primarily specializes in physics, chemistry and biology.
