– Because of Corona, the last time it was only digital. Now, the Long Science Night once again invites you to a varied program in the city triangle. Here are some tips on where you can get a fascinating insight into Fürth on Saturday.
When the first Long Science Night took place in the city triangle in 2003, Fürth and its Uferstadt became the university headquarters; four years later, the words “Science City” appeared on the plates with the name of the town.
Well, for the tenth edition of the evening event, which is organized every two years and aims to convey the fascination with science, in particular the Fraunhofer Institute has made its home in Fürth. A branch of the Integrated Circuits Institute Erlangen has been located in a golf park near Atzenhof for 22 years. In the meantime, it has evolved into a center for the development of x-ray technology and is always a topic of conversation when x-raying particularly exciting objects there. For example, recently there have been attempts to trace the secret of Enigma encryption machines.

Similar insights will be provided on Saturday evening by the ‘Airplane X-ray’ campaign at the Fraunhofer Institute (Flugplatzstraße 75), where most of the 32 program points at Fürth will be offered in ten events. Using two giant robots, the glider is examined for material defects. Demonstrations take place between 18:00 and midnight.
Historic objects such as clocks, violins, mummies and dinosaurs often undergo a CT scan procedure to learn more about them. At the exhibition, also at the Fraunhofer Institute, you can see the results that were obtained from 18 to midnight.
Plants have been growing in the same place in a climate chamber with integrated X-ray technology for some time. It aims to provide information on how plants are coping with the threat of climate change and whether we are at risk of losing our crops as a result. Demonstrations between 18:00 and midnight show how it works.
In a different location Ludwig Erhard Center in the shadow of the town hall there is a half-hour excursion at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. about the role that the “father of the economic miracle” played as a scientist. For example, in 1935 he held the first marketing seminar in Germany. A maximum of 15 participants can take a guided tour; it is advisable to be there early. The exhibition is open until midnight.
While it is? Radio and Television Museum currently closed for renovation, but as an organizer it is still part of the Science Night and addresses the issue of perfect sound. The lecture takes the participants on an acoustic journey from the 1970s to 3D sound in the worlds of virtual reality. The lecture begins at 19.30 in the Uferstadt Technical Center (Dr.-Mack-Straße 81), room 01.2042. The number of participants is limited to 25.

in KfH Dialysis Center (Robert-Koch-Strasse 41, 2nd floor) Anyone interested can learn all about the dialysis procedure then and now. The experimental setups show how the blood wash worked between 1854 and 1913. In addition to the exhibition, there is also a lecture at 6:00 PM, 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM, which lasts about 90 minutes. Maximum 20 guests are allowed.
Before the evening elders program runs from 6:00 p.m. to midnight, young researchers can also discover things between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. in Evangelical Academy of Social Pedagogy (John-F.-Kennedy-Strasse 31), you can, for example, examine with all your senses and under a microscope what is living in the green classroom. Children between the ages of five and eleven are also welcome without prior notice.
in House of Fantasy at Wasserstraße 5, children of all ages can use a variety of creative techniques to artistically discover and recreate the various forms of prehistoric creatures. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. a maximum of ten small artists can work on their work at the same time.
