Schiphol is a remarkable place and there are lots of fun facts to discover about it. Did you know that the first military aircraft landed at Schiphol on 19 September 1916? And that there used to be a lake where the airport is, 4 metres below sea level? Great topics for a presentation or project! You can also work together with your classmates using our teaching package and take part in the accompanying design contest.
Presentation or project?
Your classmates are sure to enjoy a presentation about flying and the wonderful world of Schiphol. After all, who doesn’t like to travel?
