The Futurium will start its first long-term citizen science project by setting up a netword of senseBoxes. In several workshops participants will be introduced to working with the open source weather stations.
During the Workshop Weeks, participants of the exhibit workshop for the Robot Theatre had laid the groundwork for the future exhibit. Now their ideas were taken further by the participants of two follow-up workshops.
The Futurium and its Database of Hopes will be at the Day of German Unity celebrations from 1 – 3 October 2018. Visit our stand, learn more about the Futurium, talk to us about the future and enter your wish into the Database of Hopes.
Guided tours into a distant future, colourful swarms of flying “ideas-worms”, lively discussions on digitisation, sustainability and civic involvement, an entertaining Long Night of the Sciences and, above all, lots of curious and active visitors.
In his short story “The Machine Stops” (1909), E.M. Forster (1879–1970), renowned as the author of subtle social novels such as “Howards End” or “Room with a View”, sketches a disconcerting scenario of a future – one that nonetheless comes across as almost familiar to us today.
The opening evening of the Workshop Weeks is dedicated to a topic that not only lies close to the heart of the Futurium’s work, but that is also currently of major relevance to society: civic involvement.
