Ars Electronica Center
Kids’ Culture Week at the Ars Electronica Center

(Linz, October 12, 2015) There are lots of fun activities in store for young visitors to the Ars Electronica Center during Kids’ Culture Week. In addition to guided tours of the interesting exhibitions, kids can pilot a whirlybird through an obstacle course, peer through microscopes to explore worlds invisible to the naked eye, compose music out of sounds they make with their own body, program robots and use software to bring digitally rendered figures to life. During Kids’ Culture Week from Thursday to Sunday, October 15-25, 2015, admission to the Ars Electronica Center is free for youngsters up to age 14. To preregister for workshops, call 0732/7272-0 or mail

Here’s an overview of the Kids’ Culture Week program:

Quadrocopter Flight School (for 8-12-year-olds)
Friday, October 16, 2015 / 2 PM – 4 PM
This is a great way to learn to precisely remote-control miniature, four-rotor helicopters. A tricky obstacle course puts your piloting skills to the test. Plus, you’ll learn about how these drones are being used in science, the military, art and entertainment.

And Action! (for 8-12-year-olds)
Saturday, October 24, 2015 / 2 PM – 4 PM
And Action! is a workshop in which young graphic artists can use a digital drawing board to render figures and use software to bring them to life.

Mikrocosmonauts (for 6-10-year-olds)
Saturday, October 17, 2015 / 2 PM – 4 PM
The focus here is on the microcosm, the invisible realm too small to see with the naked eye. Various microscopes—with magnification of up to 1,000x—bring to light strange sights indeed: bacteria, skin cells and lots more.

Ma Boter and Ro Schine (for 6-10-year-olds)
Sunday, October 25, 2015 / 2 PM – 4 PM
Programming robots is simple with LEGO WeDo. During these morning sessions on three successive days, dinosaurs, enchanting fairies and other fabulous creatures motivate young people to take a fun, no-pressure approach to experimentation with mechanics, sensors and motors, and bring their own creative ideas to fruition right on the spot.
