The science rally of the LOEWE research projects has come to an end. The LOEWE research cluster IDG / had asked the participating children and young people to design a road or a means of transport for future mobility. One of our two stage winners is Max B. from Darmstadt. He designed a waterway, a living river. Trees and shrubs, gravel paths and meadows make the river landscape a habitat for people, animals and plants. In addition, hydroelectric power can be generated at certain points.

Max has also come up with something for getting around: Boats that can be moved with sails or oars, so you can get to work actively and without gasoline (but also motor-driven for emergencies). You get in through a car door, and there’s enough room below the waterline for a lounge with a bed.

Congratulations, Max!
