For the third time, the Klaus Tschira Foundation invited visitors to the Explore Science science days in Bremen. This year, the focus was on the topic of "Chemistry". 20 partner institutions from the fields of education and research participated this year. "The strength of Explore Science lies in making science a hands-on experience. We are therefore very pleased that the event based on the 3G rule - vaccinated, recovered or tested - can now take place in presence again," says Beate Spiegel, Managing Director of the Klaus Tschira Foundation. All offers are free of charge. Registration is necessary in advance.

Exciting topics await kindergarten children, schoolchildren and families at 19 hands-on stations: Toxic plants as well as crystals and metals can be examined. Researchers will also explain how space travel is related to chemistry, what ocean acidification is and how colors are created.
