Was wäre der Sommer ohne Erinnerungen an Eiscreme? Für viele von uns symbolisiert der süße Genuss Sommer, Sommerferien und Tage im Freibad oder am Meer. Diese schönen Kindheitserinnerungen werden wohl auch bei vielen Kunden von Karolina Stichs Softeisstand wach.

My semester abroad in Rio de Janeiro

Thinking about going abroad for my studies in my third semester, I really haven’t had a plan yet on where I wanted to go until I saw all the partner cooperation of SRH. Not questioning my decision for long, I knew immediately that I had to take the opportunity to go to Brazil – a land we all know about since the last soccer world cup. Having only caipirinhas, beaches and the sun in my mind, I found out that Brazil has to offer a lot more than the usual stereotypes.

Geneva International Motor Show 2016

Car Salon 1 (2)

It was finally time! From March 3rd till March 13th, they held the annual motor show in Geneva with all the sexiest cars you can imagine! It needed to be done, so I rushed to Switzerland to be part of this exhibition and drool all over the new models. You are probably asking, “But cars cause smog in cities and global warming. Why would you go see something that will basically cause the end of humanity?” Ok, that was a bit extreme, but of course I had to go see the new Tesla Model X and the hydrogen and hybrid cars. The age of innovative cars is upon us! And of course, Pagani, Lotus and Aston Martin are simply awesome. We at IBARE 14 sure love us some sexy cars that run on green fuel.

I am sure we have all dreamed of having a private jet, an armored car or a teleportation device. It may seem more like a dream than reality to us students at the moment. However, those things are actually more within reach than you think! Except for the teleportation device (I am still waiting for you, NASA). Therefore, I will pull you into the world of armored cars, to make it become less of a fantasy and turn it more into a tangible, close-to-home reality. No, this is not an article about how to become rich very quickly; otherwise I wouldn’t be a student. You guessed it: it’s another interview!

International Green Week

20160119_142929 (2)

As it should be for us renewable energy students, we went with Mr. Roland Schnell to the Grüne Woche, or International Green Week, in January this year. We just had to go try all the different free food samples from different countries. Wait, I mean we wanted to go see the bioenergy section and wood pellet heaters. But all jokes aside, the bioenergy section was very interesting. We managed to get so much information that we could write a whole essay worth 20 pages, which turned out to be our class project in the end. Either way, we learned so many new things we didn’t even know were possible that we went home a little less dumb.

Electrical distribution in Thailand

As a Renewable Energies student at SRH, it is normal to wonder how the energy generation and distribution works in another country. When I was in Thailand, I saw that electric cables were still above ground unlike in Germany. However, being a total nerd, I had to find out more about where those cables came from and what the original energy source was. Thanks to NT from NCC (National Control Center – see my previous blog entry), I was able to understand the general idea of the system a little more.

A visit to the Red Cross Logistics Center in Berlin

DRK_1
BA13 students visited the Red Cross Logistics Center in Schönefeld as part of their Logistics Management seminar.

In January 2015, our SRH logistics class went on a field visit to the logistics center of the German Red Cross (Deutsches Rotes Kreuz, DRK) at Schönefeld Airport near Berlin. The logistics center was established in 2010 in this location because of the proximity to the airport.
