Long Night of Science in Berlin

On Saturday 2 June 2012, the Long Night of Science was held in several venues in Berlin. Teaching and research facilities were more than happy to open their doors for the public, and of course, BHL-Europe was there to present the project!

A stand was put up at the Museum für Naturkunde, which coordinates the entire project. Several hundred people came by and were welcomed by the Museum’s own Henning Scholz and Annemarie Scholz, as well as Jiri Frank from the National Museum in Prague. Just like at the Science on a Plate-event a while ago, the focus was partly on the Biodiversity Library Exhibition and the spices found there. Visitors could once again get to know the Scoville scale, and several plants were there to show the public where the spices come from.

Aside from this, two typical German dishes were on display: Berliner bouletten (or German meatballs) and a sweet bread called Berliner brot. The audience also had the opportunity to pick up flyers about BHL-Europe and they were treated to the following video:

All in all, a very successful night! Check out pictures on our Facebook-page.
