What does it feel like in the eye of the storm? What would our body look like if it were made of ice or rubber? What is it like to fly over mountains with a paraglider? And will a slice of bread always land butter-side down? These are just a few of the big and small questions we address at experimenta. In our worlds StoffWechsel (metabolism), KopfSachen (all in your mind), WeltBlick (looking to the world) and ForscherLand (researcher land), you get to the bottom of these and other questions and discover many surprising answers! 275 interactive exhibits invite you to a journey of discovery - fact-finding tours to explore micro worlds and our water landscape and even hop coaching with a bionic kangaroo. Your personal results at the individual stations can be saved to your special visitor wristband, the "digital backpack". It will let you view your results at experimenta online after your visit.
DISCOVER THE WORLD AND ENVIRONMENT ANEW
What happens during a car crash? How does a drop of water drip from a faucet? When does starlight start its journey to earth? The Discovery World StoffWechsel reveals what is behind the things we see and makes the invisible visible.
HOW DOES THE WORLD GET INTO OUR HEADS
How do we perceive the world around us? What role does communication play in perception? What is the human body capable of doing? The section KopfSachen reveals how complex and diverse the world is perceived through our senses.
DISCOVER, UNDERSTAND AND SHAPE THE WORLD
Is it true that a slice of bread always falls onto the side it's buttered? Is it possible to disable the laws of gravitation? How can we get an artificial kangaroo to hop? The section WeltBlick uses technology and science to show how the world can be studied and influenced.
AN ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY
How does a lock work? What needs to be taken into consideration when building a dam? What actually goes on in the tiny worlds we cannot see? The ForscherLand is a unique adventure playground for experimentation, testing and design.
Hands-on experience is always better than theory. In our four glass Creative Studios you can discover your talents and broaden your horizons. Whether mechanical, technical, creative or communications skills - everything here is about exploring, trying new things and being creative with different materials. You can produce your own cartoon, compose a piece of music, study body cells or build your own vehicle at our work and assembly bench.
