Tease your brain! Quiz, virtual globe, and interactive colouring
What is fact and what is fiction? These questions are the focus of this year's Scientifica, the Zurich Science Days from 30 August to 1 September 2019. At the joint booth of ETH Library, Zentralbibliothek Zürich, and the ETH Entomological Collection, children and adults can test their knowledge in a playful manner by taking the science quiz.
Globus and Augmented Reality
A virtual 3D model of the historical St. Gall globe makes a journey into the past, an adventure for the whole family. Discover geographic facts, constellations, and astonishing curiosities! For an even more vivid experience, augmented reality offers you the option of bringing to life insects that you have coloured yourself, with displays of additional information on the patterns and colours of the insects.
Digitization offers a window into the past
Learn what added value the digitization of historical and scientific matter brings to current research. The collections and archives of ETH and Zentralbibliothek Zürich offer fascinating insights into the past as well as the research topics of today.
