Klax Creative MakerSpace - Art and digital Learning
Our „Klax Kreativwerkstatt" is located in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. Here we offer an open space and room for new ideas and enhance creative potentials and development by providing the access to and education in digital technologies and linking them to the fine arts. By this unique approach we facilitate a deeper understanding of technology and its functionality and stimulate constructive solutions and creativity. We use problem based learning methods, giving a question or challenge at the start of the project. The participants collaborate as a group to solve the challenge; the outcome is not given but open. Thus collaboration and project management skills are strengthened and multiple solutions provide success experiences in creative thinking.
We offer workshops and courses for children and makers of all ages, from 5 to 99 years. Target groups are elementary and secondary schools, their students and teachers, Kindergarten children and their teachers as well as families.
Within our school and kindergarten programs we offer daily or weekly projects in different subjects. Individuals can join our afternoon and evening courses, weekend and vacation workshops. We offer daily courses at our Klax Kreativwerkstatt for children and teenagers. Families are invited to come to our weekend specials where parents or grandparents and their children are invited to experiment and try out our technologies together.
For teacher and educators we offer professional trainings on digital technologies and its usage in education.
In February 2015 we proudly won the Code Week Award, funded by Technologiestiftung Berlin. Over 20 school classes are invited to join us for a workshop on coding at our Creative MakerSpace this spring. In fall we will present the outsomes at the Berlin Code Week.
We use technologies like 3D construction and printing, creative coding and building as well as film, photography and animation technology. We work with products like 3D printer and scanner, Little Bits, Makey Makey, Ozobots and programs like Adruino, Tinkerkat and various apps and hardware products like tablets, smartphones and laptops.
