In September, the Goethe-Institut Golf Region organized a "Training of Trainers" in cooperation with Nutty Scientist. During this workshop, the representatives of the cooperation partners were prepared and trained to carry out experiments during the festival. The experiments were thematically selected by Nutty Scientist to match the films and this year's theme. A total of 16 films from different countries was shown. Visitors were excited about the hands-on activities and live science shows that Nutty Scientist hosted at each grand opening.
