#sciencematters - 15th LONG NIGHT OF SCIENCE MAGDEBURG DIGITAL streams 18 hours of live program on three channels

The 15th edition of the Long Night of Science Magdeburg streams a total of 18 hours of live program. More than 60 exciting program items revolve around current scientific developments, latest research projects as well as social debates. Under the motto #sciencematters, scientists show the importance of science and give an insight into their work. Special this year: all program points can be reached via the website https://www.wissenschaft.magdeburg.de.
On May 29, the digital Science Night Magdeburg presents a varied, interactive program from 6 p.m. to midnight. On three livestreaming channels, accessible via the website www.wissenschaft.magdeburg.de, Magdeburg's scientific institutions offer a virtual look behind the scenes. With fascinating live experiments, exclusive interviews, talks and discussions, science can be experienced, grasped and felt - and for the first time quite flexibly from anywhere in the world. All that is needed is a PC, tablet, laptop or smartphone.

The three live streaming channels can be accessed via the central platform: https://www.wissenschaft.magdeburg.de/ (The program is exclusively in German).

The three channels SCIENCE:PORT, THE WORLD OF TOMORROW and HEALTH AND LIFE give visitors the opportunity to follow experiments, talks, panel discussions and interviews free of charge via livestream. Here you will find insights into space medicine and research in weightlessness, the development of vaccines and answers to the question of how our brain creates illusions. Scientists track down the formula for happiness, know what our brain needs to work properly and explain how we can get through everyday life with less stress and more self-care. All three live streaming channels can be accessed via the website www.wissenschaft.magdeburg.de.

Rethinking science: On May 29, the Children's University takes viewers to a spectacular location on the campus of Otto von Guericke University and reveals whether you can eat radio wave salad, what radio waves do and where they come from. At "Meet a scientist", participants enter into dialog with scientists*. In moderated live talks, researchers report on their work, their projects and also tell very personal stories. In between, there will be hands-on experiments for the whole family.

Questions about the future are answered here. What impact will climate change have on our drinking water? What are the potential applications of artificial intelligence? Here, too, the focus is on the scientists behind the research topics. They will be on hand to answer questions in almost every section of the program. Another highlight is the construction competition, which this year is looking for the "LIGHT of Magdeburg" and which will take place virtually.

Here the name says it all. This streaming channel combines program points around the topics of health, medicine, exercise and nutrition. What nutrition does our brain need to work properly? How do we run symmetrically and gently for our bodies? And how do we better manage stress in everyday life ? Finally, at the Science Slam, the stage is set for science. Scientists explain specialist topics with wit, charm and esprit, and the audience's applause decides who wins the slam.
