At two hands-on workshops at TU Ilmenau, students are given perspectives for the time after graduation. They not only deepen their existing knowledge, but also gain their first practical experience. Schools can apply for time off for this. At the "Media production up close" event, participants take a look behind the scenes and at the processes of a television studio production. In the fully equipped media lab, they actively create their own talk show in small teams. This includes the thematic development of the show in the editorial team, learning and practicing the operation of cameras, video mixers, sound, lighting and recording equipment, through to the actual production and recording of the show.

In the "Recyclable and bio-based plastics" workshop, the young people research sustainable and innovative materials that should be recyclable. For plastics in particular, the focus is on aspects such as the circular economy and bio-based polymers. Participants learn more about the production, processing and recycling of plastics. By means of practical experiments and discussions with employees from the Plastics Technology department, they will gain first-hand insights into the opportunities and challenges of using recycled and bio-based plastics.

Registration for one or both days is still possible until March 10, 2024. https://www.tu-ilmenau.­de/veranst­altungen/m­int-ec-zuk­unftsforum
