What will we do?

The goal of the meetup is making at least a small improvement in how we think. We will practice this by reasoning from the ground up about simple physics problems. I will provide problems with varying difficulty to accomodate people with different backgrounds. The goal is not learning physics (even though this might be a side-effect) but becoming better at finding general problem-solving strategies.

You do not need a physics or math background to attend!

This is the second run of a previous event that was well received.


You are worried you have nothing to contribute? No worries! Everyone is welcome!

There always is a mix of German and English speakers and we configure the discussion rounds so that everyone feels comfortable participating. The primary language is English.

There will be snacks and drinks.

We will go and get dinner after the meetup. Anyone who has time is welcome to join.
