Matthias Koziol from the Department of Urban Engineering shows what happens to our wastewater from apartments and houses, which path it takes underground through the city and how it is cleaned and discharged into rivers.

Background Children's lectures are intended to arouse interest in solving scientific and other problems at an early age, and to give children the opportunity to experience the flair of a university. The BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg provides solutions to scientific phenomena of everyday life in a child-friendly, exciting way and thus creates formative experiences and experiences that are intended in particular to reduce the inhibition threshold to a university.
