A joint project between the Ilsenburg Goethe Secondary School and the Dr. Ecklebe
firm acquainted pupils with technological education.
How does an electric motor function? 5 pupils from the Goethe secondary school now
know the answer precisely. These pupils, through a joint project with the Dr. Ecklebe
Company, have built an electric motor themselves. And in doing so, they have collected
their first practical experience in a technological job. A win-win situation for
While the way an electric motor works is „all Greek“ to some adults, these students
understand them and can build one themselves. The ninth and tenth graders of the
Ilsenburg Goethe School took part in this project „Fascination Engineering- The building
of simple electric motors and their smart controls“ at the Dr. Ecklebe Company of
Reddeber. The project took place from March to June.
