Physics takes off - the science tour

This 90-minute guided tour based around the school physics curriculum is aimed mainly at 12-13 year olds (German year 7). Expert guides bring the curriculum to life with diagrams and experiments with particular emphasis on mass, weight and gravity and the history of aviation. Students are taken out onto the apron in an airport bus to learn about the finer points of aircraft handling, take-off and landing. To test what they have learned they are given questionnaires to complete which are rated at the end.

The science tour is available on request. The maximum group size is 30. We recommend starting at 09:00 in the morning because traffic on the apron is particularly busy at this time of day.
