Innovative research projects are especially suited for supporting talents by bringing them into close contact with state-of-the-art research and development in the area of MINT (Mathematics, Informatics, Natural Sciences, Technology). A stimulating project with clearly defined objective groups of gifted school students can raise their limits of previous knowledge. By means of self-structured team action they are enabled to conduct targeted research and develop a defined innovative result. This paper presents practical examples of aerospace-related school student research projects, including their basic conception, organizational conditions, and the essential aspects of planning and implementation. The importance of creativity as well as the supporting and stimulating key role of teachers is emphasized.
