Pop-up exhibition

Exciting installations and interactive experiments

Whether it's a sorting game about plastics and sustainability, home-made ping-pong ball machines or a journey through the inventions and discoveries of women scientists. Our pop-up exhibitions are as diverse as science itself.

A pop-up exhibition can last anywhere from 1 week to 2 months, but one thing is certain: it disappears as quickly as it appears.

This special form of exhibition gives both large and small projects the opportunity to share their results with our visitors. Always new, always flexible and never boring.

Be part of this unique exhibition format and discover the diversity of our pop-up exhibitions.

Current pop-up exhibition

Ing Pong

Ping-Pong meets technology

What exactly is a table tennis ball machine and how do you build one? This was the question asked by mechanical engineering students from the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, and pupils from the Elisabethenschule Frankfurt, an Experiminta cooperation school.

They tinkered and built things out of recycled materials.

And they came up with some amazing results. Mechanical engineering at first hand.

From Tuesday 27.02.2024 to Thursday 11.04.2024 we will be showing the results in our pop-up exhibition Ing Pong.

And if you want to try out the table tennis ball machines for yourself, you can join us live on Saturday 6 April 2024 from 10:30 to 17:30 at the Action Day. Let the students explain the ball machines to you and shoot a few table tennis balls yourself.


27.02.2024 – 11.04.2024

Action day: Saturday, 06.04.2024, 10:30 am - 5:30 pm

Admission: Admission is included in the normal admission price

Previous PopUp exhibition

Think plastic-free, act sustainably

11.12.2023 – 15.12.2023

Our first pop-up exhibition is waiting to be discovered. From Monday 11.12.2023 to Friday 15.12.2023 the results of the project "Think plastic-free, act sustainably" of the Gymnasium Süd in Frankfurt a. Main - in cooperation with the Umwelt-Exploratorium - can be explored in our ScienceCenter EXPERIMINTA.

Plastics are part of our everyday lives, which is why it is becoming increasingly important to raise awareness of sustainable consumption. This project, created as part of the European Week for Waste Reduction, aims to do just that.

A shelf of packaging alternatives showcases the students' creative solutions. This is complemented by exciting exhibits from the Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF in Darmstadt. These show what is exciting and new in plastics research and development.

But the key question is: how can we put all this into practice?

Join us and students from Frankfurt's Gymnasium Süd to discover what it means to consume sustainably. Explore the pros and cons of plastics and discover the results of this innovative project in our pop-up exhibition "Think plastic-free, act sustainably".
