diejungeakademie@ Virtual classroom


Starts on

15:00 — 16:00


Event access: Public

In light of current government advice on coronavirus, the members of the Junge Akademie will continue the event series diejungeakademie@ virtually until further notice.

Simon Lentner, mathematician at Universität Hamburg, is a guest in the virtual classroom and gives secondary school students insights into a key topic of his discipline:

Symmetrical bodies in three and more dimensions Together, the participants explore the symmetry of Platonic bodies and examine them from different perspectives in four-dimensional space. What do the bodies in the different dimensions have in common and how do they differ? These questions will be discussed in a short lecture. Afterwards the students have the opportunity to ask further questions.

This offer is designed in particular for teachers of secondary school classes to foster the exchange between academia and school. The event takes place via Zoom and is held in German.

The event is part of the activities surrounding the 20th anniversary of Die Junge Akademie. All information about the series diejungeakademie@ can be found here.
