EINSTEIN KREIDEN

text
The Einstein Foundation Award trophy is made of chalk. The trophy's concept is based on the idea of honoring a basic tool that has been used to bring knowledge into the world for as long as we can remember.
Chalk is a hybrid thing: solid and durable, soft and ephemeral. It brings thoughts, ideas, explanations and evidence to life — yet it can be easily erased to make room for something new. Writing or drawing with chalk gives you freedom to err, to add corrections and reconsider your ideas.
Thus, chalk resembles quality: It symbolizes the importance of questioning something again and again if we want our knowledge of the world to grow.
This masterpiece made of chalk invites the awardees of the Einstein Foundation Award for Promoting Quality in Research to share their next discoveries with the world.
