Carl Friedrich von Siemens High School, Berlin

The Carl-Friedrich-von-Siemens High School is located near the World Heritage Site Siemensstadt, directly across from the Volkspark Jungfernheide. In 4 Workshops and through atmospheric models, the pupils discover their favourate places in nature and their associated activities.
