Open Day at the DLR site in Oberpfaffenhofen

21. July 2019 @ 10:00 - 17:00

Public | kostenlos

On 21 July 2019 the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen will open its doors and welcome everyone with a thirst for knowledge. In addition to numerous fascinating presentations, guided tours and demonstrations at the Institutes, there will also be a varied programme of supporting events for guests. Presentations and talks will not only encompass memories of the first manned landing on the Moon 50 years ago, but also look to the future. In addition, a diverse space show presented by the DLR_School_Lab on the programme stage will explain to visitors in an entertaining yet informative way how, for example, microgravity works.

If the weather is favourable, the flying sports group will offer sightseeing flights in gliders and powered aircraft giving visitors the opportunity to view events from above. Young researchers can test their knowledge during the Open Day with the children’s quiz. In addition to this, there will also be a painting and crafts corner, as well as other great items including the voluntary fire brigade and the Bavarian Red Cross. DLR’s cafeteria and numerous food stands will provide refreshments with a variety of meals and beverages. There will also be live music from two bands and a DJ. The DLR recruiting team provides you with information about entry opportunities at its career stand.
