The Max-Planck-Institute tries to convey its work and the results of his research to a broad audience. Regular news on science results, projects and people at the institute are supplemented by a variety of events both in-house and elsewhere.
Every two years, the institute participates in the "open house" event at the Garching campus.
This year "open house" meant a long science night ("Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften") and took place on Saturday June 27, 2015 from 6 to 12 p.m.
This year, the Girls' Day took place on 28th April 2016. As for previous events, the MPE invited girls of 14-16 years, to learn more about the work at an astronomical institute.
