How to design a city in which we like to live? Why are the skies bright blue at one time and full of billowing clouds some other time? How do earthquakes come about? And why is it so important to move? This is the thirteenth time that the Children’s University at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) deals with fascinating questions of science. Between August 4 and 20 it offers children aged 7 to 14 not only ten fascinating lectures, one startup fair, and one diploma graduation ceremony, but also numerous topical stands at the Children’s University Campus in the KIT Audimax (Straße am Forum 1, 76131 Karlsruhe). Tickets to the lectures and the diploma graduation ceremony can be bought in advance and on all days of the event at the box office in the Audimax.
