Since June 2015 young researchers have been spending around 2 hours once a week at the Universum®: it is the meeting place for the new Science Club “nordbord Bremen”. What is nordbord Bremen? Interested in experiments, discovery and research? The Science Club offers youngsters aged between 10 and 19 years from in or around Bremen the opportunity to continuously explore what is known in German as the MIST disciplines (Mathematics, IT, Science, Technology) while applying a hands-on approach. New members and anyone who’d just like to join in will receive a warm welcome here!
The following topics are currently available:
Bionics – from Nature to technology
Are you fascinated by biological phenomena and their application in technology? What properties of Nature would you like to translate to technology? The wonders of Nature inspire man to achieve scientific milestones: for example, you can fly to the ends of the earth – like a bird of passage – or do up your shoes using a practical Velcro closure – something that was modelled on the burdock plant.
When? 17.08.2016-18.01.2017 always in the uneven calendar weeks during this period. The event starts at 4:30 p.m. and ends at 6:30 p.m. Not held during the school holidays.
Mission: Living in outer space?
Are you fascinated by technology and the demands of space research? Are you interested in the risks and dangers presented by the universe? nordbord Bremen – Science Club at the Universum® – has teamed up with DLR_School_Lab to probe the risks and dangers outside Planet Earth. What is the impact of weightlessness on human beings? What sort of weather exists in outer space?
When? 24.08.2016.-25.01.2017 always in the even calendar weeks during this period. The event starts at 4:30 p.m. and ends at 6:30 p.m. Not held during the school holidays.
Thanks to events held at the Universum® as well as at companies based in Bremen, scientific research centres and school labs, youngsters can regularly research, plan, design, construct, discuss and discover their creativity – and all this free of charge.
This initiative is backed by the employers’ federations NORDMETALL and AGV NORD, which jointly set up “nordbord Bremen – Science Club at the Universum®” – with the Universum® Bremen.
