Helmholtz Day in JuLab at Forschungszentrum Jülich
Jülich, 20 November 2012 – School students from Ernst Mach Gymnasium in Hürth spent today at the JuLab schools laboratory to celebrate the first Helmholtz Day. The 25 schools laboratories in the Helmholtz Association, of which Forschungszentrum Jülich is also a member, have initiated this day to commemorate Hermann von Helmholtz (1821 - 1894). The Helmholtz Association takes its name from this leading 19th century scientist. From now on, Helmholtz Day will be celebrated once a year in November.
