Visitors to the event can familiarize themselves with the latest research knowledge on real equipment for chemical process and biosystems technology in combination with e-learning modules at terminals and take their acquired knowledge home with them. The large fair stand has 180 m² of space combining learning, entertainment and relaxation (edutainment)
FIZ CHEMIE Berlin and the University of Applied Sciences Wildau will show "New Paths through the Training Jungle" at the chemical trade fair ACHEMA 2009 May 11th-15th in Frankfurt am Main. Stand F13-G14 in Hall 4.2 has 180 m² of exhibition space in which the partners will demonstrate how imparting knowledge of chemical application R&D can be combined with entertainment, a technique known as "edutainment". Interactive digital media (pictures, sound, video and animations) are combined with elements of entertainment to result in learning and fun for vocational training.
The University of Applied Sciences Wildau will present the latest research and development work with real equipment for chemical process and biosystems technology operating at the exhibition stand. Visitors to the event can use terminals to monitor what happens in an injection molding machine as it produces chips for shopping carts, or measure alcohol with a breathalyzer, and observe the processes in a biofuel cell or a fermenter. In parallel they can learn at terminals which chemical and technical processes are behind it all. The multimedia editorial service of FIZ CHEMIE Berlin has prepared the processes for representation in multimedia learning modules on the terminals. They explain the processes and invite a deeper examination of the areas of research with supplemental background information provided. For example, a quiz at the terminal provides entertainment and motivation as it shows interested persons their own level of knowledge and provides answers to fill in the gaps.
The learning modules are embedded in the learning encyclopedia ChemgaPedia, which FIZ CHEMIE Berlin has provided on the Internet for schools as well as institutes for research and higher education. This enables visitors to the trade fair to take home acquired knowledge of lasting interest and value. With 16,000 content pages and more than 10,000 users each day in research, science, education and industry, ChemgaPedia is the largest and most utilized teaching platform on the Internet in the German language. The platform offers scientific and technical training material for chemistry and related disciplines.For further information, please contact:

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
