Cray: what used to be the fastest super computer in the world, is now the playroom of tomorrow: Creative toy apps, Game Lab Lounge: this is how computer games are created, a visit to the IT library, how turtles learn to walk with programming, programming with colourful bee robots, presentation on security-critical software, reality or fantasy?

The Informatiktage are both an exhibition and IT festival at the same time
The goal of the Informatiktage is to enable the fascinating subject of computer science to be experienced while highlighting the diversity of IT. The event organisers want to arouse the general public’s (and above all the younger generation’s) interest in IT and computer science. The target group includes everyone who wants to find out more about IT: adults, children, teenagers, trainees, students, graduates, people looking for jobs, employees, parents, schools, teachers, grandparents and specialists.
We look forward to seeing you and your family and friends.
