Celebration of Max-Planck-Day

On 14th September the May-Planck Day took place in all Max-Planck Institutes throughout Germany, celebrating science with the public and giving them an insight into various research fields.

Caesar researchers engaged with the public with various hands on activities for all ages and various talks throughout an in-house evening.

An introduction to the life and person of Max Planck himself made a great start into the lecture series. Scientific talks were held by our group leaders in a full house lecture hall, allowing first hand insights into recent findings, debates and discoveries.

Games about testing the own senses as well as matching up a brain to the correct animals inspired all ages likewise. Our younger audience had the chance to build their own brain hat or to craft a colourful neuron to take home with.

A fantastic event with lots of fun and excitement!
