Questions for science
This course series represents a collaborative effort with the Stuttgart Community College, the Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper, the State Museum of Natural History, and Stuttgart Media University. Research results are presented and discussed in layman’s terms. The object here is to foster enjoyment of scientific thinking and research as much as promoting dialogues between scientists and the general public.
The “Saturday Uni” aims to bring science to the masses. It does so by aiming the lecture series both at an academically educated public but also people who previously had less contact with a university or academic education. The series is presented in cooperation with Stuttgart Community College, the City of Stuttgart and other Stuttgart-based institutions of higher education.
