On Saturday, October 29 from 09.30 until 17.00 hrs more than 200 MARIN employees are ready to introduce you to the world of model testing and hydrodynamics.
Throughout the day interactive demonstrations will be given at all the testing facilities in Wageningen. Most basins are open to visitors, who will get a chance to see live model tests taking place. They can even ride on a towing carriage and experience a real model test firsthand! On the route visitors can see how ship models and propellers are manufactured and learn more about cavitation. At the Nautical Centre visitors can even join the Captain on the simulator bridge or see how traffic on the water is controlled. In short, a fascinating journey through the maritime world.
