The students work together in small groups. They receive a specific scientific task from one of the lecturers. Then they work on a strategy for an experimental solution of this task, discuss this strategy with the lecturers and organise the experimental work that is required with the groups and laboratories which can contribute relevant expertise to the solution of the task. Finally, they prepare a short scientific talk and present it to the other students.
