Open House Day for TUM's anniversary

King Ludwig, robots and a particle detector made of Lego

On Saturday more than 15,000 visitors took advantage of Open House Day for a close-up experience of the fascinating research and future-oriented technologies at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). For the first time ever, TUM opened its doors simultaneously at all its sites on the occasion of its 150th anniversary.

How will we live with robots in the future? How will CO2 go from being a greenhouse gas to a raw material? What "aliens" can we find in our native waters? The scientists demonstrated and explained their research and developments for almost 800 program items.

Many of the activities filled children with enthusiasm for research, for example the chance to build a particle detector using Lego blocks. Older youth were able to learn about the comprehensive range of curricula offered at TUM.

And of course the anniversary of the founding of TUM was also celebrated, with music and an amazingly realistic King Ludwig II, founder of the university 150 years ago.
