Educatie

Workshops Age 6-12

KunstLab highly values transferring knowledge and work methods onto the next generation of makers. Together we can shape the future! With our education program, we hope to educate younger people in the art of research and design thinking. By using technology in a hands-on, playful manner, we hope to show the students how they can come up with practical answers to social questions. If they are equipped with our design- and thinking methods, they are able to design and create their own surroundings and future. 

The following themes are central to our entire program: art, science, technology, social issues, thematic learning, sustainability, learning through design, design thinking, citizenship, innovative solutions, waste and energy, multimedia and creative thinking. 

Do none of the workshops fit your needs, but does our program appeal to you? We will gladly think along. We can tailor our programs or come up with something new entirely with the same set of values. 

Workshop Design the future

In this workshop we will be generating energy from waste. We won’t be throwing out the garbage, but as real scientists, we will use it to do all kinds of tests with. For instance, we will see who is best at producing the most bio-gas, we will make our own instruments from waste materials and we will see how much energy is generated by playing them.

This workshop is for a group of max 30 students, is given at school and consists of 6 workshops of 2 hours.

Workshop Design the future : after school trajectory

In six weeks time, you will build an entire city of the future. Every individual gets the responsibility to design parts of the city, that in the end together will form an exciting new cityscape. Together you will place miniature figures in the streets, filming the city to give an accurate feeling of what living in the city of the future would be like. In this workshop you will get to play with a Makey Makey, design buildings, do experiments with motors and learn how to film.

This workshop is for a group of max 30 students, is given at school and consists of 6 workshops of 1,5 hours.

Workshop Your idea works!

In this workshop you are challenged to come up with original solutions to problems occurring in your own neighborhood. In small groups, you will be sketching, building prototypes and present your idea to the class! This workshop is for a group of max 30 students, is given at school and consists of 6 workshops of 1,5 hours. The results of this workshop are sometimes even put to practice by the school, municipality or collaborating organization. KunstLab can setup a bigger trajectory after school to make it all happen.
