The Science Center Idea at the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks

In its period of production the Völklingen Ironworks was a high technology location and collected the most metallurgy patents in the world. The future was created here and the latest findings were developed in its laboratory.
Originating from “Ferrodrom®,” the first ScienceCenter in the SaarLorLux region, around fire, water, earth, air und iron and steel and “Genius I. The Mission: discover, research, invent,” the idea laboratory and the exhibition “Your Brain: think, feel, and act” we have implemented the large ScienceCenter – for projects in the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks.
In our opinion, interactive science mediation, alongside creativity and artistic activity, provides the greatest opportunity to mediate an understanding of our world. We will continue and go further on this path in the future.
