Long Night of Sciences

Since 2001 in Berlin and Potsdam once a year a "Long Night of Sciences" is offered, to which the Researchers of Berlin invite the public. Fon one night - starting early evening and ending after midnight - universities, and research instiututes and university clinics are open for visitors and give those who are interested a detailed view into the world of genes and photons, into different theories of law and foreign languages, into virtual realities and quite real technical constructions. During lectures, guided visits, by experiments, discussions and films a broad range of people from Berlin and Brandenburg and their guests may discover the real working environement of scientists. In 2010 more than 40 000 visitors were counted in the participating institutions. Of course the Max Born Institute also takes part in these events: with an exhibiton in the Max-Born-hall and guided laboratory tours. Here you find some fotos from these days:
