Siemens Lab
Temperature Detection and Thermoregulation


Nacht der Forschung – Researcher’s night

Why do we sweat when we feeling hot ? Why do we shiver when we are feeling cold ? How is the body temperature regulated overall ? As participants of the exciting ‚Nacht der Forschung – Researcher’s night‘, our lab is going to interactive activities and games to discuss these and other questions with those who come to visit our booth at the event.

The initiative is a science outreach event that will happen in different scientific institutions of Heidelberg and Mannheim, and has the goal to approximate scientists and the general public. It will happen on 27 September 2019, from 17:00 to 22:00, and our lab is going to expose at the foyer of the Medizinische Klinik, Im Neuenheimer Feld 410.
