From school to lab bench - an insight into the world of science

31 Mar 2018 at 08:40

Great success at this years’s Girls‘ Day & Boys’ Day.

During our one-day event 8 pupils from different schools within Bonn got a real insight into the world of science at caesar and what it is like to be a scientist.

In a hands-on approach our group identified the compounds of various pain releavers, using chromatography and learned how to evaluate their own data.

Our pupils then had the chance to learn how electrone microscopes are working and how to prepare a sample in order to use this cutting-edge technique.

Everyone really enjoyed the hands-on experiments and we had lively discussion during the sessions.

We received fantastic feedback and it was a very enjoyable day for everyone.

New Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology of Behavior – caesar

Since January 01st 2022, the research center caesar in Bonn has become the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology of Behavior – caesar. Scientists from more than 35 nations study how the collective activity of vast numbers of neurons gives rise to the variety of animal behaviors across many species. They are now part of a large network that offers not only new scientific infrastructures, exchange and collaborations, but also a wide range of training and career opportunities. “Bringing the institute into the Max Planck family is an exciting time for us” agree the two directors Jason Kerr and Kevin Briggman.
