Dresden Science Night

Under the motto "3, 2, 1 ... SCIENCE!", around 100 scientists from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) presented their research projects to a wide audience. Thematically, the program exemplified the HZDR's research spectrum in the fields of energy, health and matter. In order to inspire even the youngest audience for science, the HZDR offered many experiments for children.
