The Science Slam "New Technologies. Live." brings (transport) science out of the university and onto the stage of the Transport Museum on 9 November.

In this competition as part of the event series "Forum Mobility Dresden", five scientists from the fields of mobility and transport will compete against each other with short presentations and lectures on 9 November from 7 pm (all in German). They will try to convince the audience of themselves and their research within a few minutes. At the end, the audience decides who has given the most exciting and entertaining presentation.

With Johannes Strohhäcker, research assistant at the Chair of Electric Railways, and Marco Berger, research assistant at the Chair of Air Transport Technology and Logistics, two young scientists from the "Friedrich List" Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences at TU Dresden are also competing for the favour of the audience.

The line-up:

  • Marco Berger (Transport and Traffic Sciences/TU Dresden): "Better badly driven than well run: 5 golden rules for full roads"
  • Dr. Uwe Gaitzsch (Materials Science/TU Dresden): "Materials for aircraft turbines"
  • Charlotte Lotze (Physics/TU Dresden): "Running faster - how running can make mobility more sustainable" 
  • Johannes Strohhäcker (Transport and Traffic Sciences/TU Dresden): "Train reloaded"
  • Kathrin Viergutz (Mobility Research/Braunschweig): "104 days of waiting - Why we (don't) love public transport"
  • Rainer Holl (presenter, author & poetry slammer)

The entry is free.

The Science Slam is organised and presented by the agency "Sciene & Stories" (Dortmund), which has already hosted several German Science Slam championships.

The Science Slam will be streamed on the YouTube and Facebook channels of the Transport Museum.

The partner of the Transport Museum at the Forum Mobility Dresden is the Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe AG (DVB).
