With the slogan "You want to know!", 124 young inventors will present their research topics from 5 - 7 March at "Youth research". Already for the eleventh time, ebm-papst will host the regional competition at the Reinhold-Würth-Hochschule in Künzelsau, Germany.

"We see this competition as an opportunity to get young people excited about natural sciences," says Hans-Jochen Beilke, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors, substantiating the strong commitment of the fan specialist in Mulfingen to "Youth research". Just like other technology-driven companies in the region, ebm-papst, too, relies on highly skilled technicians and engineers to secure its competitive edge in the future.

Again this year a wide range of topics will be presented. A device helping shoppers load their shopping cart, the physical effects of computer games, the load capacity of home-made paper bridges, a magnetic bearing fan or a comparison between dog and guinea pig relative to learning speed are only a few of the projects on the agenda.

By far the most participants of the nation-wide competition now come from the Heilbronn-Franconia region. Interest in "Youth research" has especially increased among schools. The opportunity to see the projects will be provided at the open day on Saturday, 7 March, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Reinhold-Würth-Hochschule in Künzelsau.
