Last Friday we went to Ottobock Science Center Berlin as part of the first ever Junior Lab week event.
Junior Lab is a week of fun, discovery, and an opportunity for children to design and implement technological ideas.
Participants get to learn all about the world of Arduino, coding, soldering, 3D printing and wearables, but above all, have fun.
Boys and girls aged 8 to 14 years in Junior Lab learn the creative possibilities of hardware and software in a playful manner. From building robots and superheroes, composing their favorite songs on homemade instruments and making smart clothes – this is where we came in.
We sent Ricardo, our tech guru over the Junior Lab where he taught the children the different stages in producing a Trafo Pop jacket; how the jacket works, its functions and programming and why Trafo Pop exists. He shared Trafo Pop design secrets and interacted with the children with any questions they had.
In modern society, children are constantly consuming technology; however rarely know how it actually works. Junior Lab has created a wonderful concept that enriches the minds of our future techies, and we support it whole-heartedly.
