More on the activities

Children’s workshop "Electrical circuit – create a lighted owl" The visitors will learn to create a lighted own using a wooden board, a battery, and an electrical circuit. Each participant will get to keep the owl they made as a souvenir.

Children’s workshop "E-drawing" In this workshop, visitors will use an electric motor, a wooden board, and a sharpie to create a drawing device. It can be used to draw circles on paper and participants can take their devices home afterwards.

Workshop "Control your STEMI robot" Visitors will learn to control a STEMI robot that moves and behaves like a living being. Children’s workshop "Follow me – learn to program and get your mBot moving" (10-14 years) Participants will learn to program a robot to move on a set path. An ultrasound sensor located in the robot’s body will enable it to read distance, thus allowing it to avoid obstacles when moving.

Workshop "Micro:bit – learn to program a text on Braille" (12-18 years) Participants will learn the basics of programming on Micro:bit devices and learn more about Braille by printing out dotted letters and numbers on the Micro:bit device.

Lecture "eTextile and wearable technology" The lecture will lay out the historical overview of the use of technology in design objects, art installations, and fashion. The visitors will get to know, from a technological perspective, more about clothes hacking and learn how to use wearable technology as a medical aid.

Braille workshop "Dot, dot, dot" The visitors will learn to write Braille using a table and awl.

Permanent exhibition – Dark Room The permanent exhibition will teach visitors about the origins of institutional care for the blind, with emphasis on the Institute for the Education of Blind Children. They’ll know more about the development of literacy and see artwork of blind authors. The Dark Room is part of the permanent exhibition, where visitors are completely shrouded in darkness and have to use their senses to receive information from their surroundings.
