This is the title of a joint two-day project between the Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart and Hegel-Gymnasium in Stuttgart-Vaihingen on December 7th and 14th 2010.
What do microchips consist of? How do they work? How do you create structures that are one thousand times thinner than a piece of hair? These questions and many more regarding the “brain” of electronically controlled equipment, such as computer, mobile phones and robots will be investigated by the 9th grade students during the “Microchips” project class as part of the new profile NWT (Naturwissenschaft und Technik). This school subject was initiated 2008/2009 and is taught to all student choosing the scientific profile on Gymnasium level starting in 9th grade in Baden-Württemberg.
