Children's University: Online Science Show for kids on December 5

How can we transform tap water into snow? How does nature manage to clean our water? Children aged 4 to 12 will get answers to those questions at the Children's University of TU Bergakademie Freiberg which will be streamed on December 5 at

Mascot TU-Lino will welcome boys and girls at 10 a.m. The Children's University kicks off with a Science Show for kids aged 6 to 12 presented by reporter Joachim Hecker. With his radio broadcast «Heckers Hexenküche» at WDR he brings the fascination of science to families homes. On December 5 he presents "many questions and a show packed with answers" and explaines, why our voice sounds strange when it's recorded, how one can make a musical instrument from a shoe lace or whether tap water can be transformed into snow.

At 11 a.m. smaller kids aged 4 to 6 can watch hydrogeologist Professor Traugott Scheytts experiments with water.

Participating children can paint a picture on the topics of the online children's lectures and win a voucher for the local book shop.
