On the occasion of the major project Knowledge City 2021 and to kick off Berlin Science Week, Urania Berlin is organising an open forum for science, politics and the general public to meet: the science fair „Tabula rasa.
As part of a compact theme day, the „Tabula Rasa“ science fair, together with the partner network of the Berlin Year of Science and the Berlin Science Week, offers an exciting forum for young ideas from science that appeals to different generations in a vivid way and in dialogue. One focus is on presenting Berlin as an innovative science location. To this end, young scientists will present their work on current topics relating to digitalisation, the environment and climate, medicine and health in poster sessions and then engage in a relaxed exchange with other experts and visitors providing visitors with numerous opportunities to actively participate in the discourse.
At the Tabula Rasa – science at your fingertips / Wissenschaft zum Anfassen event Dominique Bertisch, Anna Maria Argmann, Hendrik Lucka, Roya Haupt and Kimia Amir Moazami will present as UdK product design students. Kimia’s Vorkoster is her graduation project, the other projects are developed in the Find a Fact & Act project in the wintersemester of 2020/21 under supervision of prof. Ineke Hans.
The dialogue programme is complemented by a short film programme on the theme of „StadtNatur- Berlin ökologisch denken“. Here, visitors can immerse themselves in the topics of biodiversity and climate change and experience different worlds in a very vivid and lively way. In the Q&A session with the filmmakers and protagonists afterwards, visitors can ask their own questions.
A moderated final discussion will bring politicians and scientists into conversation with each other. The final event at Café Urania offers all participants the opportunity to exchange ideas and network. There will be a special hands-on area for children called „Understanding Science“.
The event is moderated by journalist, author and Zeit editor Fritz Habekuß.
