Science Show

Kiel University is a place of top-level research. Scientists are the driving force behind this, and many young people contribute to it through their projects. They can now share their enthusiasm for their research with a broad audience. With the Science Show, young researchers show WHAT they do at the university, HOW they do it and WHY: Who are the personalities behind the research topics? Why are they passionate about what they do and why should the world share this enthusiasm? In the Science Show young scientists tell their story.

The Science Show invites all those with a thirst for knowledge to get infected with this passion. One of the hallmarks of the Science Show is the presentation of complex content in a generally understandable, exciting way. We want to make our audience aware of the world we live in today and how research in Kiel is helping to shape the world of tomorrow. Among other things, the Science Show is an integral part of the Kiel Week programme of Kiel University as well as the Night of the Profs – in 2015 the “Future Profs at Night” even achieved second place and in 2019 fourth place in the election of the “Prof of the Night”.


Wibke Matthes, Head of Supplementary Studies at the Key Skills Centre:

“Here at the ZfS, students learn important key competences. I think it's nice to see that they can directly apply what they've learned in our courses, for example in the context of the Science Show.”


Dr Sabine Milde, Managing Director of the Graduate Center:

“When students and doctoral researchers present their research to the public, it is a courageous step. That's why I'm very pleased with how enthusiastic the audience is.”


Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Ilka Parchmann, Vice President for Teaching, Science Communication and Continuing Education at Kiel University from 2014 to 2020:

“Science communication is the central basis for showing people in society, but also persons from other disciplines, why research is so important. I think it's great that so many scientists at CAU are enthusiastically dedicated to this goal.”
