"Our ideals are built from the experience of parents, friends, directly seeing and learning", said The Chairman of LAPAN, Prof Thomas Djamaluddin during the Semesta Ramadhan 2018 event Theme "Golden Generation Through Space" at Aeronautics Technology Center LAPAN, Rumpin, on Tuesday (5/5). The event involved 1000 orphans from Jakarta, Depok, Bogor, Tangerang, Bekasi and Cikarang in collaboration with the ESQ Humanitarian Institute.
In such event held in Ramadhan, Thomas quoted one of the verses of the Qur'an "O company of jinn and mankind, if you are able to pass beyond the regions of the heavens and the earth, then pass. You will not pass except by authority [from Allah] (QS Al-Rahman 55:33)" The verse is a challenge for man to be able to master the world of space with the good provision of science and technology, he said.
Furthermore, Thomas hoped with this activity LAPAN can provide inspiration, passion, and motivation for the next generation of nation in realizing its ideals. Public education is one of LAPAN's flagship services in order to provide science and technology supplies in the field of aeronautics and space.
This is in accordance with LK ESQ Director Lea Irawan who said "With the educational activities to LAPAN, the children will have dreams to be realized. They will be astronauts, pilots, researchers and engineers". Lea also hoped after following this event, they will have the knowledge regarding the benefits of aeronautics and space technology to support human life, she explained.
In this event, the orphans followed public education activities such as: assembling and launching water rockets, N-219 simulators, LSA simulators, UAV simulators, mini planetariums, solar monitoring, aeronautics exhibitions, satellite monitoring, drone flight demos, assembling rocket origami, LAPAN educational film screenings, and interactive quizzes. In addition they also got donation, a gift of school supplies, and stationery.
