Demonstration at the

test stand 'Cavitation'.
Girl's Day 2016 at the IfH

On April 28, 2016, 12 girls from classes 8 and 9 participated in the workshop ‘Lab under water’.  Distributed over four stations in the water laboratories of IfH and IWG, the girls were able to conduct experiments on topics such as ‘pressure on a hydraulic structure, flow velocity measurement, effects of morphodynamics, and true-scale modelling’.
