Science Live at the Arkadenhof Excellence Slam at the Arkadenhof

The Clusters of Excellence of the University of Bonn jointly invite to a Science Slam on August 22

What are the researchers of the Clusters of Excellence at the University of Bonn actually working on? They provide an up-close look on August 22 at 8 p.m. in the Arkadenhof of the University Main Building. At the Excellence Slam, scientists from the clusters will present their research in short talks in a generally understandable and humorous way. At the end, the audience votes - and the most popular slam wins. The free event takes place one day after the finale of the Bonn Silent Film Festival and uses the festival's stage in the courtyard of the Baroque Palace. Please note: The event and the slams will be held in German.

How can machines paint plant pictures for the agriculture of the future? Are diseases pre-programmed? What role does culture play in varying lengths of maternity leave? How does light behave in a mirror maze? And what does transporting piles of sand actually have to do with modern data analysis? The six Clusters of Excellence at the University of Bonn are each represented by a scientist from their field. The result is a diverse mix of topics from economics, mathematics, agriculture, physics and medicine.

The small "competition" between the Clusters will be moderated by David Fußhöller. Admission is from 7:00 p.m., the Science Slam starts at 8:00 p.m. Admission to the event is free of charge. Registration is not required.
