3, 2, 1 … Science!

Dresden Science Night will happen again on July 8.

We are back again! On July 8, 2022, from 5:00 pm to midnight, the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) will open its doors for the Dresden Science Night with a lively and diverse program.

Children can try pipetting or estimate the number of flies in a tube during Science Night at the MPI-CBG. There will be guided tours for children to see the zebrafish. At eight science stations, visitors can build their own protein, have a look at miniature pancreas, learn about embryonic stem cells, transgenic mice and animal welfare, see the smallest structures in a cell, find water creatures in the institute's pond and identify them with researchers, observe forces within developing embryos, discover the architecture of the liver or see protein droplets in nematodes. Four lectures in the institute's auditorium complete the program.

This year we also offer guided tours in Russian or Ukrainian to our science stations. Interested people can ask at the reception desk for a guide.

Dresden's universities, non-university research institutions, and science-related businesses all open their doors to the general public once a year. Interested visitors will be able to experience science and technology, research and innovation, art and culture through a variety of lectures, experiments, guided tours, displays, and films.

We are looking forward to your visit!
