(Linz, 7.4.2019) Robots painting Easter eggs, drones transporting chocolate bunnies or the discovery of tiny details on Leonardo da Vinici’s Lord’s Supper in Deep Space 8K. The Ars Electronica Center awaits visitors during the Easter holidays with a colorful program. And if that’s not enough for you, you can design super cells or learn in a playful way how electrotechnical applications work in everyday life.

Holiday program: Which supercell can you imagine? (for 6 to 10-year-olds)
WED April 17, 2019 / 10:30 AM 12:30 noon

Cells represent the smallest units of living beings. Our bodies alone consist of more than 10,000 billion cells – each of which fulfills a certain function. 6- to 10-year-olds learn about the structure of these biologic chambers of wonder and can design their very personal cells – either entirely based on the natural model or entirely out of fantasy.

Holiday program: A little bit of electronics, please?! (for 10 to 14-year-olds)
THU April 4, 2019 / 10:30 AM -12:30 noon

Using magnets, the small components “littleBits” can be connected to form circuits. 11- to 14-year-olds learn in a playful way how electrotechnical applications work in everyday life and also learn to design robots with special properties.

Deep Space LIVE: The Last Supper – Maundy Thursday
THU April 18, 2019 / 4 PM – 5 PM & 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM

The Last Supper of Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most famous murals in the world. On Maundy Thursday, visitors to the Ars Electronica Center will be able to discover tiny details of the painting on the 16 by 9 meter projection screen of Deep Space 8K, which would remain hidden from the eye under normal viewing conditions.

Family Days Easter
SAT April 20 – SUN April 21, 2019 / 10 AM – 6 PM

During the Family Days at Easter, visitors can expect a varied programme: Easter eggs can be painted with the help of a robot, flying machines can be built, Easter grass can be viewed under the microscope or Easter eggs can be found in places that are not normally accessible.
