CAMPUS CITY: Registration Still Possible

CAMPUS CITY has begun: To mark its 50th birthday, the University of Bremen is presenting itself in Bremen’s city center until October 30. The successful first event was a science show last weekend. It is still possible to register for upcoming events.

In the impressive banking hall in the old Sparkasse bank at the Am Brill crossing, university researchers made tins explode and cola fountains shoot into the air. As should be the case at a university event, the experiments were not an end to themselves but rather had the purpose of passing on knowledge. The audience learnt how to create “elephant tooth paste” using hydrogen peroxide, what a dancing table tennis ball above a hairdryer has to do with Bernoulli’s principle, and how it is possible to hammer in a nail using a shock-frosted banana thanks to liquid nitrogen.

With over 40 events scheduled, the University of Bremen is presenting itself in the fall holiday period until October 30, 2021, with CAMPUS CITY in the city center. In talks, city tours, science shows, workshops, and panel discussions, interested persons can dive into the world of academia and university at various locations - for example, MARKTHALLE ACHT, Bremen Cotton Exchange, Citizen and Social Center Huchting, Übersee Museum Bremen, Kunsthalle, Gerhard Marcks House, and many others. There is something for all ages at the events: Whether it be a physics or chemistry show, a mathematical city tour, or events on political, historical, and other socially relevant topics.

You can register now at 3G regulations apply at all events.

“50 Reasons WHY” Exhibition Until November 7

Additionally, the “50 Reasons WHY” exhibition is open to the public in the Lower Town Hall until November 7, 2021. Why is the University of Bremen an important part of Bremen’s DNA? And where can it be found? To mark the 50th birthday, more than 50 exemplary locations in Bremen have been made visible. They show where research, teaching, and studying are an important part of the economy, politics, administration, education, and culture - and where ideas and cooperations stemming from university have given impetus for something new. The exhibition in the Lower Hall of Bremen’s Town Hall brings them all together. The exhibition is open between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesdays to Sundays. Entry is free. The 3G rule applies.
