DLR Bonn open day
Visitors to DLR Bonn’s open day can discover the research, training and innovation management for which the site is known on 17 September 2017. The day promises to showcase the site’s capabilities beyond “just” high-level research.
The DLR Project Management Agency, the Space Administration and the Project Management Agency for Aeronautics Research will showcase how, through good management, they encourage a knowledge-based society and social developments for their clients. The three institutions are deliberately headquartered in Bonn, the international science city. About 1000 DLR employees work in the field of science management and research support, helping their clients – e.g., the federal government, state governments, charities – to carry out their activities.
In addition to numerous stalls with exhibits, ‘hands-on research’, games and interactive activities, the DLR Bonn open day will also feature exciting events on stage, such as a discussion with politicians devoted to the topic of ‘Prospects for Bonn: What will future research, innovation and education look like?’ Two live bands will provide musical entertainment. The researchers of tomorrow will be able to enjoy face painting and a bouncy castle.Visitors will have the opportunity to walk on a giant game board and discover the steps involved in making new medication, use a welding machine, explore the seas and oceans in the Blue Quiz, participate in a competition for sustainable land management, see impressive aviation and space models up close, experience a virtual world that can only be won through teamwork, and learn how to get involved in protecting the environment and nature. Spin-offs from space, planetary research innovations, first-hand information on the International Space Station and sustainable aviation are also included in the programme, as are experiments in the DLR_School_Lab. Those who want to learn more can watch short films in the ‘cinema’. To top this off, guests will have the opportunity to learn more about DLR as an employer.
