Fascinating insights into nature
Inspect existing samples and exhibits or take samples yourself from the adjacent BIOTOPIA Lab garden and examine them under microscopes - since 4 October, with the support of ZEISS, the BIOTOPIA Lab has offered even more and more modern opportunities for exciting insights into nature.
Until 30 September, children and young people between 7 and 18 years of age in Bavaria are invited to discover nature on a photo safari and submit their photos for the photo competition Nature in Focus 2023.
The Kafatos Lectures aim to bring relevant bioscientific research closer to a broad audience and to communicate its daily impact on society. On 20 October from 6 p.m., Elena Conti, a biochemist and structural biologist of world renown, will give a guest lecture at the Museum Mensch und Natur - the BIOTOPIA Lab and the Naturkundemuseum Bayern are co-organisers.
Do you already know about our citizen science and art project Dawn Chorus, where everyone can become a bird call researcher?
In May 2023, school classes all over Bavaria are invited to participate. There are also great prizes to be won!
On May 10, Bavaria's Environment Minister Thorsten Glauber and Bavaria's Digital Minister Judith Gerlach were guests at the BIOTOPIA Lab to present a new app that children and young people can use to track down the forest and its secrets.
On May 4, the BIOTOPIA Lab had the pleasure of opening its doors to a particularly inspiring guest: Dr. Jane Goodall paid a visit to the experimentation and exhibition space as part of DAY OF HOPE.
On May 1st, 2023, the main bird song collection period of the Dawn Chorus project will start again: people all over the world are invited to record and share the morning bird chorus at their own doorstep and thus make an important contribution to biodiversity research even without prior knowledge.
On May 4, 2023, the DAY OF HOPE will take place in the Werksviertel-Mitte in Munich. UN peace ambassador Jane Goodall will be there - and so will the BIOTOPIA Lab.
Once again, children and young people between the ages of 7 and 18 in Bavaria are invited to go on a photo safari and discover nature with a camera or smartphone for the Nature in Focus photo competition. Until September 30, 2023, you can submit your pictures in 2 categories - great prices are waiting for you!
