On June 18, scientists invite students to look directly at their fields of research. Together with other young people, students will explore a variety of scientific topics and discuss exciting research questions. This year, the ECDF is participating in the action day with two scientists: Prof. Dr. Berit Greinke (UdK) and Prof. Dr. Tabea Flügge (Charité) will give insights into their respective research and everyday life as a scientist.
Berit Greinke has held the junior professorship "Wearable Computing" at the Universität der Künste (UdK) and the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF) since August 2018. Among other things, Greinke researched in the field of Connected Textiles how to incorporate technology into textiles and whether these textiles can be manufactured industrially. She is participating in "Einstein macht Schule" with the workshop "Textile Design: Textile Wearable Interactions - Programming with and for the Body."
Tabea Flügge has been a professor at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and ECDF since March 2020. Her research focuses on digital technologies for the reconstruction of complex facial defects in oral and maxillofacial surgery. In her workshop, "Oral Surgery: 3D Scanners - Digital Tools for Exploring the Skull" she will explain how medicine and digital technologies come together in her research.
Throughout the day, a total of 7 workshops will take place at 7 different locations in Berlin. Students can participate on site or digitally. The day of action is intended to give students the opportunity to discover and explore possible occupational fields that may have been rather unknown to them until now. Students gain insights into the fields of mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology (MINT). The day of action supports career orientation, illustrates fields of research and work, shows career perspectives and makes an important contribution to securing young talent.
Registration is required.
