Our team is representative of lived diversity: from carpenters to actors, from sailors to physicists, from florists to radio electronic engineers, from psychologists to astrophysicists, from providers of event technology to dance instructors.
What do we all have in common? The passion that we bring to experimenta.

Because there is always something new to discover or try, every day is different than the one before. So much so that we’ve even written a song about it. Watch the video and perhaps you’ll learn something about your new colleagues.
We show appreciation for each other. We are open and respect each other and feel committed to sustainable action.
We endeavor to keep communication open and trustful and handle information accordingly. We make logical decisions and seek dialog with others.

Jonathan, Maker Space
“I am an IT specialist for application development. Before I started working in the Maker Space, I worked for a small software company just 100 meters away from experimenta and developed administration software for real estate. I started working for experimenta then around 2018 about six months before it reopened.”
Maud, Education department
“I am a freelance goldsmith and a facilitator in Museum education. I’ve been working for experimenta since November 2009 and am not the department head for elementary and primary school level labs as well as the Experimental Kitchen. When children thank me personally or write after the courses and leave experimenta with their eyes shining, I know that I contributed just a bit to communicating what is positive about STEM topics.”
Johan, Science Dome & Observatory
“I grew up and went to school in Europe (Belgium), worked for a US-based company (Nashua, NH) lived in Asia (Bangkok, Thailand) – a background that has given me a unique global perspective on diverse working conditions, relations and cultures. Call me an old “planetarium fox”. I started at experimenta in September 2016 by invitation of Kenan Broman.”
Michaela, Information Technology department
“Following my studies in Business Informatics specializing in Application Management at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) in Mosbach, I worked at a commercial enterprise in the region in IT before switching to experimenta. I got my first introduction to experimenta in December 2010 while working part time as a guide while going to college.”
Nina, Brand Management department
“Once I completed my dual education and training as a media designer for digital and print media, I went on to gain three and a half years of job experience at two companies in Hohenlohe. Because I at 23 had had enough of village life, I really wanted to get out into the big wide world and I couldn’t think of any city I’d rather be in than Heilbronn! And that’s how I wound up at experimenta. I started in April 2015.”
Matthias, Occupational Safety department
“I’ve been working at experimenta since April 2018. I started as an industrial mechatronics technician in the exhibition technology department. That same year I was asked whether I would like to work as an occupational safety specialist. I had already received additional training as in occupational safety at my previous employer’s company.”
Daniel, Logistics department
“I’ve been working in the Operating Technology department since April 2017 and am responsible for logistics. My main duties are warehouse management as well as incoming and outgoing goods. Since the opening of the new building in March 2019 and the associated challenges for logistics, my area of responsibility has expended to include management of the logistics team.”
Sandra, Bereich Besucherservice
“I’ve been working at experiment since September 2018 as supervisor in visitor services. That means that I am responsible for the smooth running of the daily doings at experiment and thus also act as the direct point of contact for all visitor chaperones and minders. Since we are open seven days per week, I work in a team with four other colleagues.”
Robert, MS experimenta / Event management
“I am a mechanical engineer. My thesis in college led me to technical documentation in the area of marketing. In my professional career, I have gained a lot of experience in the field of marketing: in organizing and staging large concerts and trade fairs, classic marketing work in a managing position or as an instructor for media designers during my time as the head of an agency. I have been working for experimenta since June 2012.”
Nadine, Visitor research / Evaluation
“I’ve been in the Visitor Research / Evaluation department at experiment since November 2019. What I like most is that I support my colleagues in the exhibition department, in marketing or visitor services with evaluations and can contribute my experience. We also do research in our department and study general questions regarding learning and attitudes that also affect other science centers and museums.”
Franziska, Bereich Event technology
