12/10/2022 | On October 13, 2022, after a long Corona break, the new season of "Science goes public" will start in Bremen and Bremerhaven. From vegetables from the sea to creativity in the home office, from wingtips to boxfish, and from glacier recession to a surprise at the edge of the desert - the topics of this year's autumn series of the popular "Science goes public" format are as varied as they are entertaining. The ZMT is also participating again, this year with a presentation by PhD student Lara Stuthmann from the WG Experimental Aquaculture on algae and their potential as a healthy food.

From October 13 to November 17, scientists from research institutions in the state of Bremen will lure visitors to the pubs of Bremen and Bremerhaven with their lectures every Thursday evening at 8:30 pm. Twenty entertaining lectures, each no more than thirty minutes long, present the fascinating world of science - broken down into facts and anecdotes that are easy for laypeople to understand. Afterwards, there is the possibility of an exchange between the audience and the scientists.

Talk by Lara Stuthmann:

Date: 11/3/2022
Time: 8.30 p.m.
Place: Bermuda, Fehrfeld 34, 28203 Bremen

Vegetables from the sea? Marine algae as an addition to our diet

Food production on land is under pressure. The sea as a food resource is gaining in importance. Many people think mainly of fish or shrimp, but algae make up the majority of the living organisms produced in the sea. Lara Stuthmann talks about her work with “sea grapes” in Vietnam and gets to the bottom of questions about where sea vegetables come from and what potential they have.

Admission to all events is free. When attending the events, the currently valid corona rules must be observed. For more information on the programme, visit
