Children’s uni: the inner life of plants

Time
May 24, 2019 4:00 PM  

The children’s uni gives children the chance to get a taste of what university is like. Every semester, lectures are held at the University of Stuttgart and at Hohenheim University for children aged between 8 and 12 years.

In the summer semester, Professor Christina Wege from the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomolecular Systems at the University of Stuttgart will be delivering a lecture about the inner life of plants. Not only leaves, but stems, roots and flowers are full of surprises when seen from the inside. Spherical, sack-like and elongated cells lie side by side, like alien cities connected via tunnels. These cells have control centers, factories for producing food and construction materials, waste disposal units, transport bands, vehicles, power plants and storage rooms – all incredibly small and very practical.

Thank goodness that we have microscopes, through which we can see these tiny miracles. Professor Christina Wege will be explaining these wonders in her lecture on 24 May.

You will be able to sign up for the summer semester 2019 via the Stuttgarter Zeitung from the beginning of May.
