100 years of Schiphol

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol celebrated its 100th birthday on the 19th of September 2017. As part of the celebrations, king Willem Alexander visited the airport, where four pupils presented their plans for the future of the airport.

The pupils had visualised their ideas in models, which were developed as part of three specially developed lessons. During these lessons, the pupils learnt about the history of the airport and the various elements that are necessary to keep a modern airport running smoothly.

Marieke Hohnen developed the lessons and coordinated the project.
