On Friday afternoon from 15:00 until 22:00, the general public was invited to get insight into Tübingen's cutting edge research at the "Tübingen Fenster für Forschung (Window to research)". The event attracted numerous visitors of all age groups. Researchers from the University, the University Clinics and the Max Planck Institutes, across many different disciplines, presented their work in lectures, guided lab tours and at interactive booths that fascinated even the youngest visitors. Visitors could for example "walk" through a virtual reality environment, mix liquids of different color, see a 3-D printer "building" a human hand with movable finger joints and participate in many, many more fun and informative experiments. The event was concluded with a Science Slam.
ESRs Miguel Garcia and Pablo Diez, hosted at MyFUN beneficiary 06, Carl Zeiss Vision International GmbH, presented their MyFUn projects at one of the experimental booth and ran some science fair experiments with explanations on how the eye works.
