We are looking for your ideas for the future!
Apply with your project, exhibit or ideas on the following topics: Climate and environmental protection, alternative energies, electromobility, CAD & 3D printing, digitisation and space travel.

Registration Festival:

The festival will take place for the first time from 1 to 3 of October 2021 and then annually as a part of the "Hobby-Spiel-Freizeit" ("Hobby-Games-Leisure") at the Leipzig Trade Fair. It will be hosted in the entire 20,000 m² exhibition hall No. 4 and will offer an extensive educational seminar programme.

We are looking for talented young amateur researchers and craftspeople who want to change their future with their wit, creativity, skills and present their work and ideas at the festival.

We offer an independent platform to present all applied projects, talents and those who want to discover them. We are always available both live and virtually!

Great prizes are in store for the winners, such as trips to NASA, training in the US SpaceCamp or Russian spaceflight, awards, certificates and prize money. The globally successful international NASA junior teams also invite you to the exciting "Beat the Rovernauts" competition.

All projects must be registered online and will be judged four times (preliminary written work, on-site oral defence, display of the exhibit, online audience evaluation). Each team gets a booth and their own time in the conference centre, as well as their personal online TV Channel! Participation in the competition is free of charge. An international jury and a pedagogical advisory board will be provided. Individuals, groups of friends, work collectives, societies and school projects can apply. The age range of the participants or teams is 6 to 19 years old. One supervisor over the age of 21 is required for each participant. Individual students or work collectives and teams can register online and upload written projects in German or English in PDF format.

The main topics are:
Climate and environmental protection, alternative energy sources, electromobility, CAD and 3D printing, digitisation and space travel.

We offer practical seminars, summer camps, workshops and excursions on all topics in the run-up to and after the event at the Jesco von Puttkammer School campus in Leipzig. Accommodation and meals are provided by the school's own Space Hotel.
