“History in the web of sciences” is a module in the interdisciplinary section of the teachers' education programme at Darmstadt University of Technology. Its aim is to encourage students to see historical questions and approaches in connection with interests from the science subjects.
The course is organised in cooperation with the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt whose holdings from natural science subjects form the object of research. Students will do research on selected objects from the museum and design an app which allows visitors to the museum to explore the history of science by engaging with objects on display in the permanent exhibition.
