MS Wissenschaft – The floating science centre
BIOECONOMY- never heard of it? Onboard the MS Wissenschaft (Motorship Science), we will give you an insight into this sustainable form of economic activity, which relies on renewable resources. The exhibition is all about microorganisms and raw material cycles, new agents from nature, food of the future, and political and social questions that arise on the way to a bio-based economy. Various exhibits from science and research invite visitors to discover, try out and join in. The ScienceCampus Halle is represented with two exhibits. Interested visitors can see a video about research focusing on the adaptation of cultivated plants to changing environmental influences. They will discover the modern phenotyping facility of the Leibniz Institute for Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) in Gatersleben. On the other hand, the debate about green genetic engineering is addressed in a fun way at another WCH exhibit.
