Potsdam Science Day 2024 - BTU will be there

"Research. Discover. Join in." - is once again the motto of the Science Day in the state capital, which the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU) is helping to organize on Saturday, May 4, from 1 to 7 p.m. in the "Albert Einstein" Science Park.

At the 11th Potsdam Science Day in buildings A 43 and H, BTU professors, staff members and students will be presenting an exciting program of lectures on current research topics and inviting visitors to take part in hands-on experiments and activities.

More than 30 universities, schools and research institutions in Brandenburg will be represented on Potsdam's Telegrafenberg with a variety of program items. Admission to this event for the whole family is free.

Throughout the day, visitors can immerse themselves in virtual learning worlds, experiment with AI tools and explore their future skills at the information stand of the Centre for Continuing Education. Modern robotics technology can be experienced in a playful way at the Unex school laboratory located at the university's college.

Multifaceted lectures
Prof. Dr. Julia v. Maltzahn shows why it takes longer to get fit again after a muscle injury in old age and what role stem cells play in this. Prof. Dr. Thorsten Zander will explain how neuro-adaptive artificial intelligence will influence our lives and will also give a demonstration. Mathematics graduate Thomas Hitziger will take guests on a tour of the Greenland ice sheet in his lecture and look back on an international scientific expedition in 2023. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Höschler not only reports on the effects of flying on our climate, but also provides information on the great efforts being made to make flying climate-neutral by the middle of the century. Prof. Simone Schröder and students of Instrumental and Vocal Performance and Teaching will provide the final highlight of the BTU lecture program. The effect of music on the human organism can also be experienced in a hands-on activity through singing.

As a member of the organizing proWissen Potsdam e.V., the BTU also invites you to the Potsdam Day of Science.
