Mirrors are among the most familiar things in everyday life: we glance at them in the morning in the bathroom, they help us drive our cars and reflect the visible light in lamps. The special exhibition "mirror, mirror" brings together more than forty inspiring and no less enjoyable experiments from the virtual world behind the mirrors.
In 2002, Technorama developed an exhibition of mirrors for the first time. After a tour halfway around the world, the exhibition has now been completely redesigned and supplemented with new exhibits. In addition to classic plane mirrors, spherical and concave mirrors create spectacular phenomena. Mirrors come in shapes of bells, cones and toroids, in combination as convex- or concave-cylindrical mirrors and assembled "matrix mirrors", which strangely deform our mirror image and allow surprising aha experiences.
The 29th Annual Conference “Human and artificial intelligence for the society of the future: Inspiring digital education for the next STE(A)M student generation” will be organized by the European Distance and E-Learning Network (EDEN) on 21-24 June 2020 and hosted by Politehnica University of Timisoara in Timisoara (Romania).
The Conference will focus on contemporary educational concepts, leading practice, approaches and tools, which help to enhance the innovative power of cutting edge digital solutions, and integrating the synergetic effects of arts, the human and social dimension.
Green STEM utilises project-based learning to provide students with authentic, real-life environmental and sustainability issues to tackle while emphasising 21st century skills development like critical thinking, problem solving, cooperation, communication and teamwork. And it does this within the context of the students’ own communities, making the experience more relevant, inspiring, and engaging.
FEE’s internationally acclaimed Eco-Schools programme provides a framework to help educators integrate sustainability principles throughout their schools and curriculum and provides a model for environmentally sound practices, enhancing science and academic achievement.
Mirrors magically attract us. The confusing symmetries, asymmetries, the apparent left-right-but-not-top-down interchange quickly exceed the limits of human imagination. However, mirrors can also cause physical sensations and therefore will not leave the viewer emotionally untouched.
And because science always combines an aesthetic experience in the Technorama, numerous artists contributed ideas and exhibits in this exhibition. Among the almost inexhaustible varieties of kaleidoscopes («Schönbildschauern») are some true masterpieces for connoisseurs.
