Exciting knowledge shows, live experiments, workshops and a colourful stage programme: From 8 to 16 June, Europe's largest youth event for technology and science, the IdeenExpo 2024, will take place at the exhibition grounds in Hanover. Paderborn University will also be represented there with several exhibits. In the ‘LifeScienceArea’ (Hall 9), Paderborn researchers will immerse visitors in the world of artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and modern research, present experiments in the virtual chemistry lab and show how data can be transmitted using light. A total of 14 themed areas, including the ‘LifeScienceArea’, ‘AeroSpace’ and ‘DigitalWorlds’, will address current social issues and showcase the wide range of STEM professions (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Anyone interested can visit the IdeenExpo daily from 9 am to 6 pm. Admission is free of charge. Further information can be found on the IdeenExpo website.

The Paderborn exhibits

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Paderborn University will be presenting a 3D printer at its stand, which uses data transfer to create a three-dimensional replica of an object from a two-dimensional plan. A miniature blown film line also simulates the industrial process for producing films. Young people can find out how data can be transmitted using a laser with an exhibit from Paderborn Physics. At the stand of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics, visitors can embark on a journey into the future of technology and experience projects in the fields of AI and robotics. Thanks to modern virtual reality technology, those interested can also try their hand at various experiments in the virtual chemistry lab - without the dangers of a real chemistry lab.
