Here you find information on the topic of fiber composites and answers to the question to what extent this material can contribute to sustainable industrial production. "Kitchen - fiber composite" can be produced and tested according to instructions. This course includes a project task that can be worked on by teams of students - taking into account the basic principles of project management, which are explained in explanatory videos and materials for teachers and students. Student teams can receive a certificate if they complete the project task!

This "toolkit" introduces school pupils to the fascinating world of fiber reinforced plastics. Special attention is put on the advantageous properties of these materials and also the hurdles that still have to be overcome to fully recycle fiber reinforced plastics. In addition, school pupils will get an insight into biobased matrix materials which open up a host of research opportunities and have the potential to party solve the recycling problem.

German bottonDas vorliegende „Toolkit“ soll die spannende Welt der Faserverbundwerkstoffe für Schülerinnen und Schüler erlebbar gemacht werden. Hierbei soll besonderes Augenmerk einerseits auf die Leistungsfähigkeit dieser Werkstoffe, andererseits aber auch auf die bislang noch nicht hinreichend geklärten Schwierigkeiten bei Fragen des Recyclings von FVK gelegt werden. Gleichzeitig soll den Schülerinnen und Schülern ein Ausblick auf die Möglichkeiten von biobasierten Matrixwerkstoffen ermöglicht werden, die eine Teillösung des Recyclingproblems und vielfältige Forschungsfelder eröffnen.
