This year, 24 students visit the MPIDS for the Future Day. In our laboratories they are able to extract their own DNA from their oral mucosa cells and produce glue from milk. At the end of the future day there is a spectacular experiment on the production of strawberry ice cream from liquid nitrogen, cream and jam.

The recent publication of Jérémy Vachier and Marco Mazza with the title "Dynamics of sedimenting active Brownian particles" has been published in the January issue of the European Physical Journal E - Soft Matter and Biological Physics. The perspective view of the 3D motion of particles impressed the editors such they selected the image for the front cover of the Journal.
