The Ars Electronica Center sees itself as a compass and companion in the here and now. Our technologized everyday lives present us humans with new challenges. Dealing with the digital developments of the 21st century requires new skills and new ways of thinking. “Compass – Navigating the Future” is the guiding idea, and the claim, of the exhibitions at the Ars Electronica Center.
Opportunities for experimentation, hands-on experience and direct applications make abstract topics comprehensible and negotiable. For us, experiential knowledge and facilitating discussion are the cornerstones of learning. As an extracurricular the Ars Electronica Center, with its new areas, has many offerings for school groups. Become familiar with our exciting topics, which range from artificial intelligence and neuro-bionics, autonomous systems and robotics, to genetic and biotechnology to the far-reaching global changes of our time. And learn about the spatial and technical infrastructure and the resulting emerging opportunities for your students.
During the day you will also be introduced to the Creative School project and its learning modules for children and school teachers, that promote self-directed learning, critical and visual thinking skills by using cultural heritage content made available by Ars Electronica and European partner organisations dedale (FR), Cap Sciences (FR), Michael Culture (BE), STEPS (IT), Radiana (HR), HERITEC (UK), Chester Beatty (IE) and the Finnish Museums Association (FI).
Creative School has been funded with the support of the European Union and the French National Agency for the Erasmus+ Programme.
