In our physics lessons we aim to allow our students to experience the variety of physical phenomena. We show them how these can be metrically researched and mathematically described with the aid of experimental and theoretical methods. This helps students to understand how physicists were able to identify the underlying laws that all natural processes follow. The lessons try to take into account the historical development of physics while also addressing current technical applications, new discoveries and relevant political discussion. The aim is for students to be able to find their way in an environment which is increasingly characterised by technology.
