It takes more than a torrential, apocalyptic thunderstorm to discourage the DRESDEN-concept scientists from slamming. 2 July at 6 p.m. the Open Air Science Slam *reloaded* will take place in the castle chapel of the Dresden Residence Castle (German: Dresdner Residenzschloss). The initial Science Slam on 23 May had to be aborted for security reasons due to severe weather over Dresden.
Important information for all soccer fans: The slam will have scored all its science topics in time, well before the kick-off of the last 16 game of the European Soccer Championship.
The entry is free of charge; however a registration is required. Please send an email with the subject line “Anmeldung Science Slam” and the desired number of seats to firstname.lastname@example.org. Find it here on Facebook!
Science Exhibition opens on the Neumarkt Square in Dresden
From 2 July until 3 October 2016, the DRESDEN-concept (DDc) Science Exhibition addresses these and further questions. The exhibition will be located on the Neumarkt Square in Dresden and aims to inspire residents and visitors with scientific highlights. Prof. Hans Müller-Steinhagen, TU Dresden’s rector and numerous directors of the DDc partner institutes will open the exhibition on 7 July at 10.30 a.m. The exhibition will already be installed on 2 July.
How often can an axolotl regenerate its tail? Which materials make furniture float? How can books that are falling apart be made available online? And what is this “tactile internet”? Films, interactive elements for all age groups and texts in German and English provide information on the latest research results of the DDc partners. Around the clock, in any weather and free of charge! Four large-scale stand-up displays will convey twelve current research topics. Like it here on Facebook!
