For the Public

Deutsches SOFIA Institut (DSI)

How DSI brings astronomy to German schools and the public

Education and Public Outreach at DSI: What do we do?

With informational materials, news on the DSI homepage, talks, exhibitions, workshops and many other activities, we keep you informed about the many different aspects of the SOFIA project. We want to inspire a passion for science and technical topics especially in young people, but also in teachers, the media, and the public. Teachers at German schools or other educational institutions have the opportunity to apply to visit SOFIA in California and even go on a science flight. After the flight, they share their excitement and their knowledge with their students.
