We have two big exhibition openings coming up in early July!

On July 5, the “Mathematics of Planet Earth” exhibition will open at Karlstorbahnhof in Heidelberg, Germany! It runs from July 5 to Aug 2, 2015, and offers a big variety of exciting adventures for children and adults alike. This exhibition is organized by the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF), which came to life in 2013 by joint efforts of the Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS) and the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS).
“Mathematics of Planet Earth” is an international exhibition that shows exhibits and programs concerning the question, how mathematics can (and does) play a role in solving esssential problems of our planet. In programs, visualizations and hands-on experiments you can discover its contribution to topics like astronomy, fluid dynamics, volcanism, glaciers or cartography.

IMAGINARY will be shown at the Clore Garden of Science at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel, opening on July 7, 2015, and running for three month! This is the first of two IMAGINARY exhibitions in Israel in 2015. The second exhibition will be at Bar Ilan University towards the end of the year. The two exhibitions are part of the project IMAGINARY Isarel, funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research, which includes two scientific events as well: A summer school in Kaiserslautern, Germany, with young researchers from Israel and Germany in September, 2015  and a short workshop at Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv in early 2016.

Furhtermore, we invite kids age 12 - 14 years to the IMAGINARY workshop to explore the interrelations of science, art, and music at the KinderuniKunst in Vienna, Austria.
