Understanding the World through Computer Simulation
In today’s world, computer simulations are to be found everywhere in science and engineering – scientific progress today is practically inconceivable without it. “In the digital lab” is a science exhibit that takes a fun look at the world of the digital laboratory. Visitors are invited to learn more about simulation at interactive stations to answer questions such as: What can we discover with simulations? Why are they used and what can be done with them? What is a scientific model? Can I also do simulations on my own computer?
From May 9th to July 30, 2017 in the Planetarium
Stuttgart’s Carl Zeiss Planetarium is listed among the top international group of planetariums. The exhibit is set up in the Spektralsaal and is open during regular Planetarium opening hours.
Admission to the exhibit is free.
Cooperation with SFB 716
The exhibition is a joint effort with the University of Stuttgart’s SFB (Collaborative Research Centre) “Dynamic simulation of systems with large particle numbers.” This SFB is also funded by the German Research Society (DFG).
