Vacuum, Waves, Atoms and Life: the Maus Türöffnertag with IPS and IBPT at KIT
For the second year running, IPS and IBPT have contributed to the „Maus Türöffnertag“. This unique open day, initiated in 2011 by the „Sendung mit der Maus“ (https://www.wdrmaus.de), allows children to explore exciting places such as workshops, factories, and research institutes. Here they can discover for example what the link is between a vacuum cleaner, a telephone, a microwave and a particle accelerator and how can you do exciting science with these devices. On the 3rd of October, forty young researchers between the ages of 5 to 12 years explored these questions together with us, amongst other things finding out how to look inside insects and crystals.
