Tinkering with No Limit – The Competition "Creative Minds" 2013

Again this year there was tinkering, developing and bolting. The participants in the eleventh round of the competition "Creative Minds", in the last few months have once again built a number of innovative prototypes, which were awarded now.

This well-received competition invites students to participate, and seeks to put into practice innovative ideas in the fields of science, technology, computer science or mathematics. A record-breaking 114 ideas were submitted this year, with 25 having been admitted by the jury. The students then had until the jury session in April to transfer their ideas into a concrete prototype, together with supporters from reputable local companies, such as BARTEC. Together with Iris Lange-Schmalz, who led the competition, the jury chairman Prof. Dietmar Hilpert could now distinguish the best ideas. The overall victory was for an iron that automatically shuts itself off. 2nd place went to the inventor of a feather-light trombone stand, coming not even to 850 grams in total weight, which also can be stored in the horn. The development of a kettle that heats up water to exactly the desired degree received 3rd place.
