School watches Museum: Future Matters – Materials of the Future

from the 5th school level

| | |

Every era has its material! While plastic was celebrated as the miracle product par excellence in the 1960s, today we are researching intelligent (artificial) materials. We dream of materials that recognize our needs and independently adapt to changing situations and circumstances. In this workshop, where fun and creative experimentation with programmable materials as well as discourse and reflection on materials of the future are on the agenda, the pupils become material researchers and inventors.

The workshop includes a theoretical part as well as a practical hands-on part. The connecting element of both parts is a joint discussion and reflection of the contents, paired with illustrative and supporting examples (videos, visuals, mentimeters).
