Caravan of Science 2017

From January 11 to 24, the “Wissenskarawane” gives school students the opportunity to get insights into the research done at research institutes in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. On January 17, the MPIDR opens its doors to students.

Once a year, the MPIDR opens its doors to students from schools in the Rostock area, introducing them to the world of demography, and showing them how demography is being studied at the MPIDR. Groups of students tour the Institute, visit its labs, and learn about birth, death, and their own lives.
