Vacation Lineup at the Ars Electronica Center

(Linz, December 22, 2015) The program of activities at the Ars Electronica Center is a great way to keep the blues at bay during Christmas break. At the “Prix Workshop,” 8-11-year-olds can experiment with a fully equipped sound studio, a green box and animation software, and then submit the results for Prix Ars Electronica prize consideration. LittleBits is a fun, playful way for 10-14-year-olds to find out how electronic applications work in our everyday life. In “Measure Up,” young researchers age 10-14 learn about historical and contemporary measuring procedures—from the ancient Romans to state-of-the-art satellite scanning. ATTENTION: The Ars Electronica Center is closed on Mondays until January 15 as well as December 24, 25 & 31, 2015, and on January 1 and 7-15, 2016.
