Our workshops enable visitors to experience research through art and crafts.
We officially opened our workshop rooms in July 2011.
In a “creative laboratory,” topics from our current research can be experienced through art and handcrafts in the workshop room, pottery room with kiln and computer room. At the same time, we have direct access to a work terrace outside and to the Bee Marie. It offers the chance to observe animals, insects and plants in their natural habitat.
This new workshop area provides a space to wake inquiring minds; knowledge is experienced and not explained. All visitors, young or old, can discover the joy of experimentation and develop their own questions and ideas. MaxCine offers a unique possibility to communicate research, find new paths with the scientists and see where they lead.
In our children’s workshops, which are offered in the school holidays and on a weekly basis, we understand children's natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge and try to find creative means of developing this. At the same time, we allow for holistic growth and a life surrounded by research with the adult scientists.
