The Stuttgart region on social media


@weshowS
The Stuttgart region has a lot to offer. If you look closely, you can discover your home in a completely new way. Many people are already doing this: they use their cameras to focus on S and record how worth living in S is here. We want to make these diverse perspectives visible – on a common digital platform. Join us and show us #SoistS & @weshowS.

When was the last time you felt old? With back pain at a concert? Or when you wondered what "NPC" or "Rizz" meant? Growing old is a real privilege, but it also brings with it big changes - both for us personally and for our ageing society. That's why it's all the more important that we have enough competent and empathetic #nursing professionals today and in the future. At @dhbwstuttgart, this is exactly what is being done. Here, students can put themselves in the #lifereality of older people with the #agesimulationsuit: muffled hearing, limited vision and stiff joints. This way they learn to better understand and respond to the challenges and needs of people in need of care. Prof. Dr. Bettina Flaiz, head of the Applied Health and Nursing Sciences program at DHBW Stuttgart, gives you a taste of the effects of ageing in under 42 seconds. #RegionStuttgart #SoIstS #SoStudiertS #179

If you're looking for enlightenment, you're sure to find it in the @stadtbibliothekstuttgart. Around 500.000 books, films, maps, sheet music, audio recordings, musical instruments and graphics are on the shelves at Mailänder Platz in Stuttgart. And of course the building itself is worth a visit, as it is known worldwide as an architectural highlight among modern #libraries. Many thanks to @fischepp1962 for the great photo. #RegionStuttgart #SoIstS #179

POV: You are studying applied midwifery sciences at @dhbwstuttgart. Sophie and Leonie take us to the skills and simulation laboratory. The two prospective #midwives learn there how to put theory into #practice. In this protected environment, they practice caring for pregnant women and the birth processes that are required in clinics or birthing centers. This allows students to specifically develop their practical and communication skills before later supporting women and families from family planning through birth to breastfeeding. The dual study program at DHBW Stuttgart offers the advantage that graduates receive both a Bachelor of Science and state recognition as a midwife after seven semesters. This dual qualification opens up a wide range of career opportunities and further training options, be it in clinical facilities, birthing centers, as a freelance midwife or in research. @dhbw.dualstudieren #RegionStuttgart #SoIstS #179 #SoStudiertS

Bizarre and unique characters, immersive worlds and stories - that's what @studiofizbin stands for. Tobias Frisch, executive producer of the award-winning developer from Ludwigsburg, delivers his visions on the interplay between creativity and AI in our #digithoughts. What influence will technology have on our games? Can it ever replace human creativity? You can find his thoughts on this in the video. #RegionStuttgart #SoIstS #179

Prof. Volker Helzle explains exactly how it all works, what challenges it presents and what speaks in favor of using the technology in a crisp 42 - er, 43 - seconds. Prof. Volker Helzle is responsible for research and development at the @animationsinstitut of the @filmakademie_bw. The department has been researching LED technology for a long time and is considered one of the leading research institutions in Europe in the field of #VirtualProduction. #RegionStuttgart #SoIstS #179 #SoStudiertS

Who invented it

The wind power plant

Without Swabian engineering, the energy transition would be difficult to achieve. The modern use of wind power has its roots in the Stuttgart region: Stuttgart professor Ulrich W. Hütter developed the original model for all modern wind turbines in the 1950s.

The one-man chainsaw

The first chainsaws were developed at the beginning of the 20th century and for a long time were so cumbersome that they had to be operated by several people. Andreas Stihl, the founder of the company of the same name, put an end to this in 1950. He invented the world's first one-man chainsaw.

The labor writer

Around 50 years ago, medical professor Konrad Hammacher developed a device that could, for the first time, record the heart sounds of an unborn child and the contractions of an expectant mother. In 1965 he presented his invention to the Hewlett-Packard company in Böblingen.
