Since 2004 XLAB hosts an annual Science Festival.
Top-level scientists – many nobel laureates among them – are giving lectures on their research activities. Hundreds of high-school students from all Northern Germany and the interested public are an attentive audience.The lectures are normally given in German. The program of the Science Festival 2016 can be found here (german only).
The next Science Festival takes place on the 25th and 26th January 2017.
The lectures or related articles are published in the book series “Aus den Elfenbeintürmen der Wissenschaft” (“From the Ivory Towers of Science”).
