On June 18, the time has finally come again – Freiberg invites you to discover & experience the Night of Science and Business. Between 6 pm and midnight you can experience the world of science at numerous locations in Freiberg.
We from the IEC will be there again this year, informing about the latest research topics and offering numerous exciting opportunities to experiment and participate. You will find us at the Schlossplatz and at the Center for Efficient High Temperature Conversion (ZeHS).
What can you expect? – Here are some program highlights:
- Short lecture “Carbon and sustainability – how do they fit together?”
At the Schlossplatz, we will give you an introduction to highly topical research topics of the IEC in the context of the energy and raw material turnaround at 7 pm.
- Carbon cycles – from waste to raw material – green molecules for chemistry.
Do you know what is behind a carbon cycle? You are a part of it!
You want to experience electric mobility up close and simply try it out for yourself? An obstacle course invites you to test your skills.
- All the fuss about particles
What is a fluidized bed? Can you manage to keep the fluidized bed stable on the test stand?
- Ore Mountain Project
At our Ore Mountains booth we will inform about the cross-border project ERZ2022 with the planned educational offers on climate, environment, energy and sustainability.
- Power through the energy quiz!
Where does our energy come from? Test your knowledge about energy and power generation.
- Children’s experiments
Young visitors can estimate the energy content of fuels and foods, conjure up color in a bottle with the “Blue Bottle” and make a memory. Exclusively for the researchers of tomorrow!
- Reicher Zecher: The campus beer of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg
Try a sip of the TUBAF campus beer Reicher Zecher! The silver ale brewed at the Reiche Zeche impresses with fruity hop aromas, where craft beer fans get their money’s worth.
Researchers at CAC and University have developed a market-ready technology for producing synthetic gasoline – without fossil fuels. Kevin Günther from Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz GmbH (CAC) will inform 22:45 in a lecture around the topic of synthetic fuels.
…and many other exciting program items.
