Echt oder Fake Tuesday 14.5.2019 Lecture Hall 5K

Tomorrow a few of our members will be part of "ECHT oder FAKE". It is an event where scientists from different disciplines present their topics in an easy to understand style but not everything they say is true. Therefore, it is the audience's task to figure out what is correct or not.

We are very excited and looking forward to an evening full of fun, interesting talks and science.

Oh.. and the person who can best figure out what is true or fake can win a prize ... fingers crossed :)
