These were the children's lectures at the KinderUni 2023:
June 21, 2023, 5:15 p.m., Audimax: Chemical experiments from the smallest cauldron in the world - Prof. Dr. Anna Schenk, Physical Chemistry
With exciting experiments we dive into the world of tiny nanoparticles with crazy properties. Although these "dwarf" particles are invisible to the human eye, we encounter them everywhere in everyday life. We will produce nano-particles ourselves in our "witch's cauldron" and let gold shine in all colors. We also want to make the tiny particles visible and explore the mysterious forces that are at work in the nano-cosmos.
June 28, 2023, 5:15 p.m., Audimax: About radio connections through solar storms and mysterious codes - Prof. Dr. Sascha Kurz, business mathematics
How to steer a Mars rover when solar storms disrupt radio communications? How can astronauts talk to Earth thousands of kilometers away? Why can you still hear a CD even if there are small scratches on it? What does the scanner at the supermarket checkout actually "read"? You'll see how mysterious codes and a bit of math can help spot and even correct errors in messages.
July 5, 2023, 5:15 p.m., Audimax: Sport is murder? How exercise affects your body - Prof. Dr. Othmar Moser, Exercise Physiology and Metabolism
In this lecture we will discuss why people who exercise regularly do not die earlier but, on the contrary, live longer. At the same time, we will discuss whether there will soon be a pill that will replace exercise according to the motto: I watch TV and don't move, take a pill and my body "believes" that it's exercising.
July 12, 2023, 5:15 p.m., Audimax: Never clean up again! – Robbie does it - Prof. Dr. Nicola Bilstein, Marketing & Service Management
Should a robot clean your room? How can you tell if he did well? What happens if the robot makes a mistake? When is room cleaning a service and why are you constantly surrounded by services in your everyday life, for example when you take the bus to school, call friends on your cell phone, post on TikTok or go to the doctor?
