A story by Benjamin Kitzinger:
At the IDC 2011 in Ann Arbor (MI, USA) I presented our first paper called "Involving High School Pupils in Quality Assessment Research
I talked to Collegues from the University of Bremen about workshops with kids.
They frequently organize these Workshops and invited me to
support them in a summer-workshop in August named "Magisch, Mysteriös, Zauberhaft: Im Wunderland von Morgen
where kids aged 9 - 14 designed and constructed magical characters by using Sensors and Actuators and programmed Arduino Boards in order to make the magic happen.
It was real fun to work with the kids and watch them being creative and learning fast.
I learned a lot about how to work with children in Bremen and at the IDC and we will try to use
some of the stategies we learned in order to improve the workshops in the QUASSUMM project.
Furthermore, we try to set up a collaboration with the University of Bremen, besides Workshops and Children.
