We have some articles about conferences, mathematics, ... take a look into our blog.

Girl's Day 2018 What do you need »Boundary Conditions« for? Training to translate science: Communication workshop with NaWik

Girl's Day - Wir machen mit (Logo)

Members of the CRC offered interesting workshops to female pupils to inspire them to go for a future in maths. The two topics were traffic and music recognition. (Links are not longer available.)

As part of the »Cooking Math« project, David Hipp of the CRC Wave Phenomena and Oliver Jelko of University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe developed a video explaining what boundary conditions are for in describing waves mathematically. (German language)

written text communication science online

To prepare CRC members to communicate their research to a wider audience, we held a training workshop with the colleagues from the National Institute for Science Communication. (Website in German)

Cooking Math

The »Cooking Math« project was a common effort of the CRC Wave Phenomena and the Science Vision and the Graphic Design Department at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe. Design students and mathematicians transformed mathematical aspects from CRC projects into art through different media. (Website in German)
