Our „Klax Kreativwerkstatt" is located in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin. Here, we offer an open space and room for new ideas, enhancement of creative potentials and development by providing access to and education in digital technologies and linking them to the fine arts. With this unique approach, we facilitate a deeper understanding of technology and its function, 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 pre-determined but open to interpretation. Thus, collaboration and project management skills are strengthened, while the availability of multiple solutions promotes 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. At Klax Kreativwerkstatt, we offer daily courses for children and teenagers. Families are invited to come to our Weekend Specials where parents or grandparents and their children can experiment and try out our technologies together.
For teachers and educators, we offer professional trainings on digital technologies and their application in education.
In February 2015, we proudly won the Code Week Award, funded by Technologiestiftung Berlin. This spring, over 20 school groups are invited to join us for a workshop on coding at our Creative MakerSpace. In the fall, we will present the outcomes at Berlin Code Week.
We use technologies like 3D construction and printing, creative coding and building as well as film, photography and animation. We work with products such as 3D printer and scanner, Little Bits, Makey Makey, Ozobots; programs like Adruino and Tinkerkat; various apps and hardware products including tablets, smartphones and laptops.
