Source: Koerber Foundation MINT challenges and experimentation offers for the home – two tried and tested formats that are now also being used for the Christmas holidays and the current winter lockdown – started in the Student Research Center (SFZ) in Hamburg.
A school research center thrives on giving children and young people with a special interest in science and technology a place where they can meet, exchange ideas and do research. In 2020, however, the SFZ Hamburg had to go into lockdown again and again. Ideas were asked of how to enable “home science” and thus make the young researchers an attractive offer to come together digitally to experiment. MINT challenges and experimentation offers for the home started in the summer – two tried and tested formats that are now also being used for the Christmas holidays and the current winter lockdown. Under what conditions is life even possible? Which places in the universe could be considered? How would a living being have to adapt in order to be able to survive with the prevailing conditions on a strange celestial body? For the best entries by January 8, 2021, the SFZ Hamburg will award prizes in the categories of science, creativity and presentation. Further information on the competition can be found here. Experiment without limits! Several interactive video meetings with the student research center deal with winter topics during the Christmas holidays: »Do animals freeze in winter?« Or »Red cabbage or red cabbage?« In joint experiments, for example researches how mammals protect themselves from being cold. The experiments can be carried out at home with simple means. The offers are free, more information about the events and registration can be found here.
