How do ships swim safely? Why do things that happen acci-dentally happen so often? And who invented the Euro? Answers to these and many other questions will be given during the 12th Children’s University at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). From August 5 to 21, 2014, the Children’s University will provide children aged from 7 to 14 with the opportunity to experience science. Ten presentations, an opening fair, and a diploma celebration will be organized at the Audimax on KIT Campus South (Straße am Forum 1, 76131 Karlsruhe). Advance sales of tickets for the presentations and the diploma celebration have started.
