Mathematics Informatics Station (MAINS)

Welcome to the

Experience and understand mathematics and computer science! In 2017, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation opened the MAINS, right near the Heidelberg central train station. Throughout the year, we offer various activities for all age groups such as interactive exhibitions, portrait gallery, film screenings, Science Notes, lectures and much more. Come and see for yourself how exciting mathematics and computer science can be! The MAINS also offers guided tours of the exhibitions for school classes and groups.


Explaining Artificial Intelligence

The time has finally come: beginning January 29, 2022, the interactive exhibition is coming to MAINS and uses images, videos and experiments to explore the core questions surrounding artificial intelligence: How does it actually work? How can it be used? And what are its limits?
Until then, the website offers an interactive tour of some of the exhibits.

The exhibition was developed and implemented by IMAGINARY and funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation.
