Ö1 Children’s University Alpbach – Science and Technology for Kids

-
Hayek-Saal
Breakout / Science Bastler
german language

The children’s programme of the Alpbach Technology Forum invites girls and boys aged seven to twelve years to solve the questions of “How?” and “Why?” in science and technology in an entertaining way. They get a chance to experience research hands-on and ask questions freely, thus gaining access to scientific themes in an enticing, surprising and above all comprehensible way. These are experiences that stimulate children to think and explore further and will also be passed on to a broader audience together with the radio programme “Ö1 Children’s University”.

In-sight.

First we would like to know: what are media? By which means did people communicate in earlier times and what about today? Next we will focus on electronic and digital media. We will talk about the visible and invisible using concrete examples. Of special interest will be the question if and how the images correlate with my/your reality and/or vision.

Participants: Only children of participants of the Technology Symposium aged 7 to 12 years or children from the village of Alpbach with special invitations may be registered for this programme.

Please note: limited number of participants, registration necessary!
