Science festival „Effects“

Science festival „Effects“

Karlsruhe has a long tradition as an inventor, innovator and pioneer. From June 21-30, 2013 it transformed itself into a big interactive laboratory, in which everyone was able to discover and marvel.

The KIT focus „Optics & Photonics“ presented itself from June 22-23 in a booth behind the castle of Karlsruhe, where our staff explained the exhibits and offered a laser game.
