Wissensstadt Berlin 2021: Wissen auf die Hand / Forschung on the rocks



Die Junge Akademie is participating in the project "Wissensstadt Berlin 2021" with several activities. Among other things, it will be represented with two booths on July 2 on the square in front of the Rotes Rathaus.

How dangerous is the work of an ancient historian? What is the most important working tool of an art historian? How emotional is the work of a climate researcher or political scientist? And what is the one thing people should know about astrophysics? Scientists from Die Junge Akademie will answer these and other exciting questions about science, humanities and research.

As part of an action day of "Wissensstadt Berlin 2021", Die Junge Akademie will be present with two booths on July 2 from 3-8 p.m. At the booth "Knowledge to go" Isabelle Dolezalek, Lukas Haffert, Christoph Lundgreen, René Orth and Fabian Schmidt will hold a science flea market, where you can not only get interesting conversations and knowledge for free, but also exciting research objects for take away.

At the booth "Research on the rocks" Robert Kretschmer will be available for questions about the Expedition Anthropocene, on which he will also give a short talk on the main stage at 3 p.m. Six scientists* and members of Die Junge Akademie went on a research trip to Ecuador at the beginning of 2020 and dealt there with the advancing climate change and its effects on humans. Robert Kretschmer brought along the ice drill that was used to study glaciers. You can drill it yourself. And there will even be a surprise for the little ones.
