The planetary science group at the I. Physikalische Institut in cooperation with the Junioruni program of the University of Cologne and the Odysseum received a special mention for their outreach activities for 13-15 year old kids from the "2011 Europlanet Prize for Public Engagement with Planetary Science" committee.

The committee stated that "Manuela Sornig and the group at the I.Physikalisches Institut at the University of Cologne are models for scientists wanting to develop public engagement programmes.  Their efforts to engage with networks of outreach providers, together with their success in targetting the hard-to-reach 13-15 year old audience, should be highly commended as examples of best practice ."
