Bionics: Nature Makes Inventive!

Bionics exhibition makes station in the Saarland until November 15, 2009 has the joint exhibition of the bionics competence network BIOKON e.V. and the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU) in the lamp room of IKS – industrial culture Saar GmbH in country hamlet speeches. The Bionic experimentation field for big and small is open from 9 am to 6 pm daily – admission is free. Amateurs and professionals, adults and children, companies or associations: “inspiration nature – patent workshop Bionics” is aimed at a general public! Approximately 240 square meters the exhibition shows how work along the lines of the nature technical products. Many models of nature and their applications in engineering are presented in seven different topics.

Where: touch and try out is strongly encouraged! Discover with all senses, decrypt and experiment – that is here in the foreground “, says Prof. Dr. Hans-Joachim Weber, Manager of the bionics cluster BEN. Many of the exhibits, experiments, and interactive elements to load a sensual experience: for example, visitors can feel why the stop on ship hulls is difficult by bionics for barnacles. “Understand, why tutor tree” excites the engineers. And hear how dolphins communicate with each other.

Relationships like the cat’s paws and tyre profiles, from shark skin and bathing suit or Lotus Flower and tile access to visitors. The exhibition presents examples from nature and its amazing application in our daily lives. Many hands-on elements illustrate bionics to the touch: in the footsteps of aviation pioneer Leonardo da Vinci cast, based on biological models of the shoulder look researchers in their search and find out which Bionic products to maybe even daily use – such as, for example, the Velcro. The visitors waiting for so many AHA effect! Because the objectives of the exhibition are: interest for the young science cause bionics to invite to participate and the curiosity of the engineers of tomorrow for natural and technology-oriented questions wake up. With the exhibition we want to do a generally comprehensible and entertaining bionics in the exciting field of study. And we want to show how intelligent the nature has solved problems for the man still looking for answers,”says DBU – Department head Dr. Rainer ERB. The exhibition from the seventh grade level is suitable. Students in selected topics of the exhibition to specialise on a station learning”. Granting that a diversified educational companion material available is for schools and their teachers. In addition to events such as a children’s University and special lectures on the bionics we offer also free tours to individual topics after consultation and if desired,”, Weber makes it clear. And the Professor continues: the exhibition underlines and impressively represented the Saarland competence in this compelling science of the future. And she strongly supports our primary concern: the awareness of the Bionics in the public’s mind to increase.” For more information see:
