Teens & Kids
As creators of future digital society, kids are more than welcome at re:publica! Here’s to another year of crafting, playing, coding, and puzzling.
Entry is free of charge for all young guests up to 15 years of age (please bring ID for proof of age!) We’ll be setting up colorful playgrounds and downtime areas for exhausted kids (and parents.) Young and old folks can let loose during our Kids Sessions at the GIG Makerspace or Kidspace. Teenagers surely already discovered the TINCON. There will be plenty of sessions during re:learn and in the overall re:publica programme where kids and their parents can and should speak up — and don’t worry, of course there’ll be a ball pit.
Please find some practical information about the Kidspace on this seperate page.
- Research & Education-Wir sorgen für Krawall im Bildungssystem. Mit Mikrocontrollern und upgecyceltem Material entstehen unerwartete Töne und überraschende Ideen dafür, wie wir Schule in Zukunft anders machen möchten.
- Science & Technology-How can you have "fun" and not be "bored" without the presence of any digital source. You can create your own game, within an indoor/outdoor frame, and with the availability of basic items present in any living room or house. (pillows, chairs, sheets, etc…)
- Arts & Culture-kids of all ages now have the ability to play a video/movie/game with the option of putting a pause to it or rewinding or restarting, this challenge aims at putting the kids in a frame where the scenarios have to keep going with no option of pausing and rewinding: HOW MUCH MORE FOCUS WILL BE REQUIRED?
- Arts & Culture-How easy does it come to the child?
In this workshop, the kids will be presented with 2 ranges of toys/games and comparing how easily it is for a kid to understand a new digital tech toy more than a simple basic old toy or game.
- Research & Education-Missing on little details: The kids will assist to a storytelling session, in which, two versions of the story will be told.
The first, while omitting little but important details, and then the second, telling the same story with these details put in again: and asking the kids how that made the story different.
- Arts & Culture-It’s all in the little details: An art session where we will be teaching kids to draw and paint dot by dot (pointillism) with their own fingers which will look so simple and easy to the kids but will result in a fascinating artwork and that will point out the value and importance of little details in creating the whole image.
