BUILDING BRIDGES

After theoretical input on the statics of bridges, participants develop a model bridge themselves, which is then exposed to a load test. The bridge consists of one or more modules made of cardboard, which are drawn with CAD software and cut with the laser.

RESONATE

You can’t teach competencies, you have to acquire them yourself. This is how I understand my task as teacher: to invite, inspire and support the participants in their projects. The main goal is to create an optimal learning environment for everyone and to tune them into their own frequencies so that an orchestra sounds.

PLASTIC FANTASTIC

With the emergence of plastic, our lives have become simpler, more convenient, easier and more colorful. We encounter objects made of plastic every day: toothbrushes, cordless screwdrivers, extension cords, etc. – Can we say that we are living in the age of plastic?

COLABOR MODUL

Soundlab is one of the 24 +Colabor modules that offer the opportunity to practice other disciplines and media, reflect on design processes in depth and learn new methods. In this specific SoundLab module, students build an electronic instrument, explore its sonic universe, and share their results with others.

PHYSICAL COMPUTING

An Arduino or similar micro-controller is a quick way to breathe life into a prototype. It’s not just a physical prototyping board, but a system of an easy-to-understand programming environment, a project hub for inspiration, and a world-wide and helpful forum. So what are you waiting for?

BEAUTY ALGORITHM

We go in search of the beauty in algorithms and discuss what effect computer-generated images have on us, what is perceived as aesthetic and why. Can beauty be captured in a mathematical formula? To finde out that, students created sketches and ideas with pen and paper and do the final realization via a browser-based software called p5.js.

CREATIVE SPACE

We focused on the topic of creativity and well-being. What do I need to feel inspired? In which environment am I particularly creative and in flow? We craft, draw, glue, design, fantasize and dream our creative space, where we feel comfortable and where we can develop our visions.

DIGITAL MANUFACTURING

With 3D printers and digital production machines, we have arrived at production unit one. This means that parts are produced just in time and no longer in large quantities in stock. But it also means that we can break new ground in terms of production location, spare parts and production reliability.

CONSUMERISM

Humans are defacing and threatening their own habitat through their consumer behavior and have thus arrived in the age of the Anthropocene. In the module we research problems and discuss alternative, sustainable solutions.

TINKER TEC GIRLS

In this electronics and prototyping workshop we solder an amplifier and a simple synthesizer circuit. The housing is of laser cut wood, the knobs are made by 3D printer. Learning how to make things yourself is the goal.

DIY MICROSCOPE

We take apart a disused webcam and turn the lens so that we get a macro lens. Then we build a stage from laser cutting parts and mount the modified webcam. In no time at all we have a wonderfully functioning DIY microscope, which invites you to dive into the wonderful world of the microcosm and document your discoveries directly on your computer.
