Laboratory course: Slip in the lab coats for CRISPRing!
Check a CRISPR experiment with molecular biology methods (PCR and cracking gels). No idea what that is? Doesn't matter! Our workstation partner - the team of Science Bridge e.V. - explains everything step by step and will guide you through the 4-hour experiment.
Simulation game: Malaria and dead mosquitoes
Scientists have developed a method (Gene Drive) based on CRISPR-Cas, with which the malaria mosquito Anopheles can be almost completely exterminated. Great idea or a dangerous intervention in nature?
In an 2-hour simulation game, we slip into the role of doctors, affected residents, researchers, environmentalists and local politicians to shed light on the advantages and disadvantages of Gene Drive from all perspectives. Answers are not easy, but only by knowledge and knowledge-based discussion can we get closer to a solution.

DIY Repair Course
The interactive parcours, hosted by our partner Ingenieure ohne Grenzen e.V., provides impulses for the world' s salvation - every 15 minutes you can prove your practical, analytical, individual and team skills at various stations and immerse yourself in the world of repair, upcycling and energy generation. No ready-made solutions are presented, instead your own creativity is required.
As well as in the workshop next door, where you can make a wallet from your own Tetrapack.
In addition to the productive part, you can also inform yourself about various self-made innovations from Ingenieure ohne Grenzen e.V., Rat für Zukunftsweisende Entwicklung and Open Source Ecology Germany. These include a dust sensor, a solar power bank with bamboo housing or a mobile charging station.
If the worst comes to the worst, this knowledge also helps to make the best of the situation after the apocalypse.
How can we plant food after an apocalyptic incident?
This is one of the questions our partner GND is dealing with at this workstation, with you.
For this purpose, the use of multi-level cultivation under artificial light is presented, which, among other things, deals with the prevailing critical conditions, such as the maintenance of photoautotrophy.
See for yourself how plants can grow under sunlight simulation and thus ensure our survival. Learn more about the benefits of Vertical Farming and see live what food can be obtained from these plants.
Who still has time these days to deal with the question of clothing in a post-apocalyptic world?
Under the guidance as well as the specially selected and prepared garments of our partner, Fräulein König, the design of your end-time outfit will certainly be easy for you and you will no longer have to worry about what you will wear once you have survived the end of the world.
So come by, be creative and create your own End-Time-Outfit!
Hunting is a skill that is often underestimated - it looks so easy in movies and on TV, but still, seasoned hunters often train for years.
This is not surprising since evading attacks is the main job of most larger animals in nature.
While we cannot train you with years of experience in one or two days, nonetheless our workstation partner Bogensport Kieschkar, will show you the basic archery skills you need to hunt in the wilderness when the time comes.
Plötzlich Wissen! goes doom...
Three researchers, a few experiments, a hand-puppet in the pub at the corner - that's how you normally meet "sudden knowledge!
At our apocalyptic science festival Children of Doom, the scientists show in a funny and exciting way with their forktail manatee hand-puppet Dilhan, how Doomsday events could influence our seas & oceans and thus the entire life on earth, or even extinguish them, and which mechanisms are responsible for them.
