Girls' Day 2012 at MPE

Thursday, April 26, 2012     from 9 am to 12:30 pm

You all know the stars and might even have seen the white band of the Milky Way on a clear night. Present-day astronomical instruments produce not only impressive images of the night sky; they also reveal more and more details about the various objects in the heavens: stars, gas clouds, near and far galaxies. The scientists at the Max Planck Insitute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) construct some of these instruments and analyse their data. At the Girls' Day 2012, astrophysicists will explain to you our understanding of the Universe and will present some insights into the daily work of a researcher. In an astro-quiz you can not only win some prizes but will be able to talk about astronomical topics with the experts. You can also discuss with them what it means to study our Universe.

Recommended age: 14-16

Please note that the programme will be in German.

Places are limited, please register via the official Girls' Day website:
