After two years online, Jugend forscht, Germany's science competition for young talent, is back live. This week, at the regional Jugend forscht München West competition organized by MIRMI, Franka Emika and the Robokind Foundation, 63 young scientists presented 44 exciting and innovative research projects in the seven thematic areas of Jugend forscht, Working world, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics, Technology and, for the first time this year, Earth and space sciences.

Jugend forscht is Germany's best-known research competition for young people from the 4th grade to the age of 21. The competition promotes STEM education throughout Germany since 1965. Talents compete in six Jugend forscht subject areas: Working World, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics, and Technology. The Munich West Regional Competition is organized every year by Franka Emika, the Robokind Foundation, and MIRMI. You can participate in this exciting initiative by joining any of the Jugend forscht jury teams. The event will take place in person on 15 and 16 February…

Irene Bruckmeier, awarded 2nd place in Physics at the Jugend Forscht Regional Competition of Munich West in 2021, won the first edition of the Robotics & AI Internship organized by MIRMI and Franka Emika as a special prize for her project in Robotics ‘Control and stabilization of a two-wheeled LEGO robot with Simulink’ (original title: Regelung und Stabilisierung eines zweirädrigen LEGO-Roboters mit Simulink). This one-week internship covered theoretical and hands-on tasks in Robotics, from actuators and sensors, robotics control, collaborative (lightweight) robotics, mobile robots, MedTech…

Students from the Bayerische EliteAkademie visited two MSRM labs located at Heßstraße 134 in Munich. They learned about embodied AI and discussed with experienced researchers the opportunities that human-centered robotics and AI will open to their future career paths.

From 08. to 12.07.19 the MSRM gave students of the MINT-Academy the possibility to solve complex problems with the help of robot arms. The one-week event took place at the Schülerforschungszentrum in Berchtesgaden and gave students from the surrounding area, including Austria, the opportunity to deal with various scientific and engineering fields, such as genetics, biology, chemistry, physics, geology, mathematics, robotics or computer science. The two groups of students in the robotics area each had the task of producing lemonade and guacamole semi-automatically. The task included the…
