In Review: Science Night at KLU

Kids playing with mini forklift in KLU foyer

On Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 5 pm until midnight, KLU welcomed the public at the 5th Night of Science in Hamburg. Over 50 universities, research institutes, and other scientific institutions also opened doors that are usually kept shut to the general public.

Right after sunset, the event started with a steady flow of night owls young and old (the owl is the Night of Science symbol). Thanks to the enthusiastic support of the KLU students and staff, we managed to get our visitors to participate in many fun activities – a forklift contest for kids, the award-winning “Prom Dress Game”, and the logistics version of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” for example.

KLU PhD students presented posters related to their research, and professors Kai Hoberg and Niels Van Quaquebeke gave multiple presentations on logistics and leadership. Science Night at KLU was all about logistics and leadership! Overall, the feedback from our visitors was great. In total, over 600 participants visited KLU that evening. The night for curious, inquiring minds was a complete success at KLU.
