Children and teenagers aged 7 to 14 – Alpbach Learning Programme
August 13 to 31, 2018, 9am to 1pm and 2.30pm to 6.30pm
In conjunction with the European Forum Alpbach and the local community, the Alpbach Learning Programme offers an exciting educational program for children and teenagers between the ages of seven and fourteen that will provide fun and challenging learning opportunities designed to stimulate and encourage the innate curiosity of a young person to learn and to create. Kids will have the opportunity to meet and interact with scientists and experts, as well as Forum participants and locals. They will be able to ask them questions and perform hands-on experiments. Interactive workshops, games, and both creative and cultural activities will be key components of the program. Various activities, such as experimenting, designing, cooking, or a fire drill with the Alpbach Fire Department are being planned. The beautiful environment and the stories of Alpbach and beyond will also be explored.
The Alpbach Learning Program is free of charge for children of registered participants of the European Forum Alpbach 2018. The number of participants is limited to 20. Please understand that we must keep to this restriction due to security reasons for all kids.
To register your child, please send an email to Ruth Heinisch. The participation of a child presumes the registration of one parent to the events of the European Forum Alpach. Please send the name and date of birth of the child, the period of participation (from/to) as well as your personal mobile number.
Registration is open from July 15 to 31, 2018.
At the check-in at the reception at the Congress Centre Alpbach, please ask for your badge for participation as well as your child’s.
If you would like to share your knowledge and experience with the kids, please get in touch with Ruth Heinisch.
