Award ceremony for the school competition in mathematics and physics
The student competition was held for the 36th time this year. The challenge cup went to the Gymnasium in den Pfarrwiesen Sindelfingen. The winning team achieved the maximum possible number of points. Second place went to Heinrich Heine Gymnasium Ostfildern and third place to Landesgymnasium für Hochbegabte Schwäbisch Gmünd. This year's tasks came from the fields of mechanics and combinatorial geometry. In addition to written solutions, submitted videos of the experimental task in particular were also created and included in the evaluation.

Seeing the hidden
A lecture by Prof. Bernadette Hahn
In medicine and radiology, diagnosis requires a daily look into the inside of patients, in biology into the inside of cells and in astronomy into the most distant corners of our universe. In the lecture, Prof. Bernadette Hahn showed how this is possible with the help of mathematics.

Walk to Art "Forms and Forces
In ten stations, Prof. Markus Stroppel explained mathematical and physical phenomena using the artworks on campus, around the S-Bahn station. The artworks were placed on this "learning street" between 1978 and 1985. You can take the tour without a guided tour via the "Forms and Forces" website.

Beat the mathematicians!
At the game booth of the mathematics department
The mathematics booth in the foyer of the Audimax was conspicuous from afar. Here, visitors could compete against mathematicians in combinatorial games. Visitors learned from Dr. Friederike Stoll and her team how to play and win without making mistakes. Many visitors gladly accepted the offer and were able to take home a specially produced coin as a souvenir.

Think, fiddle, discover!
The stand of the Mathematics Department was also always well attended, as topological puzzles, the dice snake, knot-tossing and brainteasers attracted visitors of all ages.

Study mathematics
a lecture within the bachelor application day by Prof. Jens Wirth
The event, in which the study programs of physics and mathematics were presented, was well attended. Prospective students took the opportunity to ask questions, get detailed information and talk to Prof. Jens Wirth.
