Experimental Workshops for Kids

From Monday, 14 April – Friday, 18 April 2008 the Bremen UNISchoollab offers experiments for kids (age 5 – 12). Twice a day, from 10:00–12:00 and from 14:00–16:00, an experienced assistant from the Bremen schoollab invites kids to playfully unravel mysteries of mathematics and nature. During the hands-on experiments kids can build so-called "Leonardo-Bridges", and find out interesting facts about geometry and how it rules the system of nature. Other experiments will show why things weigh differently in water compared to air.
