13:00 Start second half
15:30 Closing Ceremony
The day starts at 8u30. Parents and children will register before continuing on. During registration the kids will receive their T-shirts and the parents will get a schedule. Afterwards we can start exploring.
Your kids do NOT need to have any prior knowledge and can just come and discover the world of science, technology, engineering, math and IT.
We have several activity stations where the kids learn by doing an activity and we have a couple of workshops. Once again we have tried to tie together the different stations by a storyline. The kids can try the activity stations in the order they appear in the story or they can switch it up and do as they please.
All activities will be held in Dutch, French and English.
A Few Example Activities
This activity station teaches kids about electricity and how circuits work.
They learn about capacitors and resistors.
This year there will be another physics station. This year we’ll focus on gravity.
A workshop to teach the kids about how to encrypt and decrypt messages. Techniques such as Caesar’s cypher will be explained.
During this activity the kids get to enjoy demolishing old electronics. After their demolition rampage they get to identify certain hardware elements. If they’re up to it they can even become inventors and build something new.
During this activity the kids get to learn how a lock works. We try and teach them a problem-solving approach by trial and error exercises. A lock is just a big puzzle waiting to be solved.
During this activity the kids get to learn about safe use of the internet and how to deal with certain situations. We are also arranging a session for parents.
