DMC’s hydrodynamic engineer explains the Archimedes principle to young students
17 April 2019
It is important to raise the interest of our younger generation towards Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in our technology-driven world. DMC’s hydrodynamic engineer and naval architect Christoph Steinbach was invited to demonstrate several experiments to the second grade students of Brecht-Schule Hamburg.
With equipment provided by Technische Universität Hamburg, Christoph demonstrated several experiments explaining the Archimedes principle, which is the original idea of water displacement and the reason why objects float. “One of the experiments was to fill a milk box up with different substances to see when it floats and sinks. The kids were very enthusiastic about the interactive experiments. They did all the work, I only explained it to them.” Christoph said.
By frequently participating in local educational events, it is DMC’s goal to make the maritime shipbuilding sector more attractive to our younger generation. Together we can ensure the future craftsmanship of the maritime shipbuilding sector.
