Animal Tracker 2.11.3
With Animal Tracker, you can follow the movements of wild animalsall over the world that are being tracked in near-real time! Thesemovements are collected by tiny GPS tags carried by the animals andare stored at Movebank, a free online infrastructure used byhundreds of researchers to manage, share, analyze, and archiveanimal movement data. You can easily participate in our scientificresearch projects: Upload your real-life observations and photos ofour tagged animals to Animal Tracker. Your observations are crucialfor our scientists! We can determine the positions of the taggedanimals but we are lacking behavioral observations - we caninterpret our data much better with your additional observations.Therefore: become a scientist, become an Animal Tracker!

MPR eMagazine 3.8.7
Research doesn't have to be heavy: the Max Planck Society's sciencemagazine, MaxPlanckResearch, is now also available as a freeeMagazine to read on your iPad or Android tablet. The eMagazinefills you in on the history behind the stories – thoroughlyresearched and written in an accessible manner. Renowned sciencejournalists visit the research institutes of the Max Planck Societyand look over the shoulders of scientists while they go about theirwork. This is how we deliver first-hand reports on what science isup to today and will achieve tomorrow. Alongside topical shortreports as well as the sections Physics & Astronomy, Biology& Medicine, Matter & Material, Environment & Climate,and Culture & Society, every issue contains a special focus ona specific subject. The articles cover all areas of currentfundamental research – from cosmic objects on the frontiers ofspace and time through ecological and social systems, up to themolecular and atomic structures on which the inanimate world isbased. The MaxPlanckResearch eMagazine is published four times ayear, both in German and English. Subscribing to the new eMagazinemeans you will be able to read all issues on your ipad or Androidtablet.

PhotonLab Quiz 1.4
This is the App for the PhotonLab.The PhotonLab is a student labfor scientific communication with a focus on physics e.g.photonics. The lab was founded by the German initiative MAP(Munich-Centre for Advanced Photonics) and is situated at theMax-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching near Munich.Thegoal of the quiz is to make the students reflect on the topics theylearned in the lab.
Color Game MPI 1.1.1
Can we communicate across the barrier of languages, with imagesinstead of sounds? The scientists behind the color game willdocument the evolution of a new kind of language, a language beyondwords. They will explore the way that new words emerge, acquire ameaning, or change their meaning, over time and across space. Willthe color game give birth to different dialects, languages thatonly some people can understand but not others? Will the images ofthe color game evolve in the same way that words for colour evolvedthrough human history? These are some of the questions that thecreators of the Color Game hope to answer.
DahlemTour Berlin audio guide 1.1
Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of science and go onajourney in time through “Germany’s Oxford”, now the DahlemCampusin Berlin. Ten stations tell stories about the formerresearchinstitutes of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society (now the MaxPlanckSociety) and about the people who made pioneeringdiscoveriesthere. Only rarely over the course of history have somany NobelPrize winners lived and worked in a world created forthem. On yourtour, you will experience the special atmosphere thatcharacterisesDahlem and its campus to this day. You will travelthrough time andspace, meet the past in the present, and gain alively impressionof outstanding achievements of modern research.Accompany Otto Hahnand Lise Meitner as they discover nuclearfission and listen to thestory of their unusual friendship thatsurvived two world wars anda regime of terror.

Science often strives to push the boundaries of the known worldtoexplore new topics and make the invisible visible. In addition toapurely scientific documentation of research objects,sometimesimages are created that feature surprising aesthetic formsandstructures — abstract works of art from a world normally hiddentothe human eye. For the exhibition “Images of Science”,scientistsfrom the more than 80 research institutes of the MaxPlanck Societyprovide images showcasing their work. The multimediaaudio guide tothe exhibition offers you exciting insights into thediscoveriesand methods behind the images. They range from theuncovering ofthe human body’s long unknown defence strategies tothe explorationof dark matter in the universe, from the function ofnovel solarcells to the documentation of art historical treasures.In additionto the audio explanations, you will see many morepictures, and youcan also select films, slide shows, andsupplementary texts on thevarious topics.
