More than 120 children participated in the free Sioux Hot-or-Not: The Next Generation workshop on 15 October. This time the technical workshop was entirely devoted to building and collaborating with each other.
By popular demand we focused on the Great Ball Contraption this year. During the workshop, the children experienced what it is like to work together in project groups and to build the well-known marble track together. Each group worked on its own module that was eventually merged into a large course.
Hans Odenthal, oragnizer: "With the organization of free workshops and engineering days, we want to let children experience technology by themselves. We live in a world where the role of technology becomes more and more important, but at the same time, there is also a shortage of engineers. So we must do everything we can, to fill this gap and get the engineers of the future excited."
