Inside the climate lab


As every year, the KinderuniWien took place for two weeks in July and offered children aged 7 to 12 the opportunity to learn about interesting topics at the university. This time we were guests at UZA2. Welcome!

In addition to the already well-known climate lab, which once again highlighted what is behind climate change and what it all has to do with physics, this year there was also a contribution from geophysics in which the interior of the earth was explored in more detail. Through vivid explanations of our team, the interest of the children was quickly awakened, so that there were also exciting questions. The children especially enjoyed the various experiments, such as the sea ice melting experiment or the triggering of a mini-earthquakes. In cooperation with institutes of our faculty we organized a puzzle rally through the UZA2 and showed the children the diversity of our faculty. As every year, we thank all participants and supporters and look forward to seeing you again!

On behalf of the Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics, we wish you another great summer!
