Mouse Day 2023: Physics fun for over 70 children

31.10.23 | Faculty

On October 3, the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy participated for the seventh time in the Doors Opener Day of the Sendung mit der Maus.

Glittering sherbet rockets, large fog rings, sour lemon batteries and much more could be discovered by curious mouse fans at the faculty's action day at the beginning of October. After the welcome by Prof. Dr. Ralf-Jürgen Dettmar, Dr. Niklas Fornefeld offered an exciting physics show for more than 70 children and their parents. The lecture hall technicians Hanno Niesler and Volker Hegenberg provided active support.

After the opening show, thanks to volunteers from the faculty, there were eight stations where the children could marvel and experiment themselves. Among other things, the little explorers could learn something about plasmas and their application, make their own sherbet rocket and let it fly, get to know the world of star charts, snack on delicious nitrogen ice cream, learn how to make an alarm clock ring with lemons, learn about experiments for home and participate in great experiments in the lecture hall.
Thanks to the student council and numerous cake donations, the physical well-being of all guests was also taken care of.
At the end, all children received a mouse diploma and a surprise, and the team and the event received a lot of positive feedback.

We are already looking forward to the next Mouse Day!
