The project Science by Doing offered the pupils of the Gustav-Freytag-Schule a wide range of events about the River Panke, spread throughout 2019. Through workshops and visits the Art Science collective DIY Hack the Panke made it possible for students to artistically explore biology, chemistry, design and ecology, and to implement their own ideas. In addition to workshops on the topics of urban ecology, microplastics (Kat Austen, Joana MacLean), microbiodiversity (Sarah Hermanutz, India Mansour, Daniel Lammel) and wetland ecology (Sarah Hermanutz, Nenad Popov), there were performances such as the Wasserklang Orchestra (Kat Austen), where the pupils examined the Panke using self-made instruments, which was later presented as an installation at the Berlin State Opera.

Further workshops on algae and speculative design (Fara Peluso) introduced the students to current topics on sustainability and biomaterials. The school science club also visited Art Laboratory Berlin, the Lacuna Lab and the Futurium. Finally an art and science exhibition was presented in the school with the results.
