Off to the US with “Jugend forscht”: An interview with STIHL apprentice Patrick Ziesel

Last year, STIHL apprentice Patrick Ziesel won the German-wide competition “Jugend forscht” in the category “Arbeitswelt” (the working world). Together with Joshua Rikker from Bosch, he invented a wood splitter and felling aid. Patrick Ziesel has since attended the ISEF (Intel International Science and Engineering Fair) − the world championships for “Jugend forscht” − in Los Angeles. He tells us all about his experiences there in this interview.
