As a child, Carl Bosch (1874 - 1940) was very curious. Nothing in his parents’ house was safe from his scientific curiosity. He took apart his mother’s sewing machine, he coloured his family’s valuable copper plates black with his chemical experiments, and he spent all his pocket money on installing his own miniature laboratory.  
In the spirit of Carl Bosch’s childhood curiosity, we encourage our young visitors to carry out the experiments on their own, enabling them to comprehend scientific phenomena with all their scenses. 

“Tüfteltreff” – Science experiment gatherings
We offer Science experiment gatherings to our young individual visitors (7 – 10 year-olds). The meeting takes place twice a month, on Wednesdays and Fridays from 15.00 to 16.15 and costs 3 € per child. This activity can’t be booked by groups.

Please contact us for booking and further information +49 (0)6221 603616.
