Science Tour – "Physics takes off"

This tour brings physics lessons to life. For school students in years 6 to 10, three different concepts have been created which focus on the topics of dynamic and static lift. In the theoretical part, trained guides teach the students about physical variables and processes that play a role in aviation, 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 from close by. To test what they have learned they are given questionnaires to complete which are rated at the end of the tour.

The science tour is organised on request only. The maximum group size is 30.

  • Duration: approx. 2 hours
  • Price for individuals: €8 (per child/student), max. 2 accompanying persons
  • Groups: Minimum price, children/school students: €150
