Was ist der Werkraum?

Der Werkraum ist eine Plattform für Studierende von Studierenden, um eigene physikalische und technische Projekte und Experimente unter Begleitung von Tutoren umzusetzen.

Zur Ausstattung gehören Werkzeuge für Elektronik sowie für mechanische Arbeiten; Aber auch Arduinos, Raspberry Pi und ASUROs, und diverese damit kompatible Sensoren und Module gehören zur Ausrüstung.

Practice groups

  • Group Werk1 (Felix Passenberg; Theo Heimel; Alexander Wagner)
    25 participants
    INF 227, R.3.201 ("Hardwarepraktium"), Fri 14:15 - 18:00

The 'Werk- und Experimentierraum' (work and experimental space)

Teaching and learning methods


  • Introduction lecture including a safety briefing: most likely on 2018-10-26 at 14:30.
    (schedule conflicts are solvable, we have a time machine ;-) )

  • Weekly meetings: Fr. 14 - 18 (attendance not required)

Learning content

Independent execution of own projects


  • Microcontroller-programming

  • Raspberry Pi, Arduino

  • Physical experiments

  • Mechanics-projects

  • using a 3D-printer, elektronics and mechanical tool equipment

  •  Your own project idea!


Learning aims

The experimental education of the students is further enriched with creativity, inventor spirit and technical abilities.

Real, non-ideal systems are used to sharpen physical intuition and understanding.

Teamwork and self-contained problem solving are emphasized during the process.



useful are/ or accompanying: PEP1, PEP2, AP and programming skills.



The aim of the 'Werkraum' is to promote independent and free project work. Therefore, CP are not provided.

After mutual agreement, it may be possible to make an exception for representing the university of Heidelberg during scientific contests (REXUS/BEXUS, ...).

Similarly, a project may count as a presentation in a FP-Seminar after mutual agreement. In each case, the requirement is a focus on a physical subject.
