Name: „Pitch your Science" – Science Communication Project
Topic in SoSe 23: Our Universe (Science Year 2023)
In the practical project, students work in interdisciplinary groups to make science perceptible. Models or visualizations are developed that make current, socially relevant research tangible. This can be prototypes, mobile games, interactive simulations, VR applications as well as a podcast or a planetarium show. The aim of the practical project is to present these science communication projects outside the university, e.g., at the Bochum Planetarium. An overall theme connects all projects. In SoSe 23, this will be the topic "Our Universe", in line with the Science Year 2023.
The practical project will be carried out in cooperation with the Makerspace of RUB. There, the practical work on the projects will take place and workshops will be held.
Accompanying workshops on project management will also take place.
Students first develop project ideas, which they pitch in short presentations. After selecting the project, they write project plans outlining what skills they need to develop their project and what materials are required. Based on the project plan, workshops are arranged with the Makerspace and materials are purchased.
As they work on the projects, the progress is documented. Before the public exhibition, all students design the advertisement of the practical project together in a further workshop. All groups present their projects in a colloquium.
