Science Live!

Experience science up close – in the Aha?! Science Lab

The new event format in the Aha?! Science Lab offers visitors the opportunity to meet researchers, gain insights into research work and get involved!

Microscoping real samples from the sea? Get an insight into the biodiversity of the fossils in the Messel Pit? Or explore your own DNA? Visitors can do all this in our new interactive event format “Science Live” in the Aha?! Science Lab. Twice a month, Senckenberg scientists present their research topics in the museum – with live broadcasts into laboratories or scientific collections, exciting hands-on objects or experiments.

This not only gives visitors an insight into the diverse research fields at the Senckenberg institutes, but also the opportunity to talk directly to authentic researchers. They can ask their questions and, among other things, find out what everyday research looks like and how scientific research actually works. Visitors can also experience this for themselves: whether through their own work at the microscope, simple experiments or hands-on objects from the collections.

The “Science Live” offer is just as suitable for adults as it is for children aged 8 and above. It is not necessary to register in advance.

You can find the next dates in our calendar.
Please note that “Science Live” events may be in German only. You can find information on the languages for the individual events in the calendar.

The public events take place in the Aha?! Science Lab. This interactive exhibition for research and discovery is open to visitors almost every day and is supervised throughout by experts who provide personal guidance and support visitors with their own research questions.

More information about the Aha?! Science Lab can be found here.
