What do we need energy for? Is it possible to look through non-transparent objects? How is a skyscraper built, and what will a future vehicle look like? Answers to these and many other questions will be provided by the 2013 Children’s University of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). From August 2 to 22, children aged from eight to twelve may join a total of nine presentations, one opening fair, and a diploma celebration at the Audimax on KIT’s Campus South and, thus, experience science and technology. From now on, tickets for the presentations and diploma celebration will be available.
Being “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association”, KIT creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility, and information.
