The Programme at the Max Planck Institute Magdeburg

The 13th Science Night in Magdeburg took place on Saturday, 2 June 2018. It attracted thousands of Magdeburg citizens into open universities and research institutions. The MPI offered a programme to discover basic research in the engineering sciences: experience live and hands-on experiments our institute for kids and grown-ups! This was our programme in 2018:
