Become a scientist!

We offer public workshops and OpenLabs in the areas of biology, chemistry and physics daily in our labs. Our spectrum of offers ranges from an initial, perhaps more tinkering approach to the sciences in the form of simple experiments in the kitchen, to challenging topics including quantitative methods.

Normally, these offerings are held in German. On request, however, several workshops can also be booked in French, Italian or English.

Public workshops

The biology, chemistry or physics workshops open to the public are held daily and last 45 minutes. Tickets are available at the Information Desk – please book in due time.


An OpenLab – the "little brother" of the workshops, so to speak – approaches the respective topic more independently. After a brief introduction, you can experiment on your own.


Tinkering - that's the creative process of tinkering, constructing, inventing, and investigating. The Tinkering Lab is usually open from 2 to 4 pm.


We offer a series of workshops in the areas of chemistry, physics and biology for groups and school classes. They may last anywhere from 45 minutes to four hours, depending on the workshop.

Book tickets for public workshops upon your arrival. Please note that the daily program may change in some cases.
