Most of you are probably all too familiar with questions such as "So what exactly are you studying?" or "And what can you actually do with that later?" If you'd like the opportunity to show your friends and family what it is you're studying and explain to others what you can do with this, then take part in the Long Night of the Sciences on 24 June at the Wilhelminenhof campus! In February your professors will be deciding if they wish to participate and which projects they intend to present.
