Join Addictlab @ExpoJuniors: 500m2 of lab projects

For the third year in a row you can find Addictlab at the ExpoJuniors in Geneva. The fair takes place end of April (20- 21-22) and attracts over 12000 kids, families and schools, age 4 – 14. The collaboration between Palexpo and Addictlab has resulted in a huge lab environment, where kids and their parents or grandparents can learn, discover, experiment. Addictlab can tap into a list of partners, such as the IUCN (Nature Conservation), CERN, 3Doodler, Sphero and other on the booth last year.

This year we focus on even more ‘lab’ projects:

  • “innovate education” ideas, focusing on ‘hands on’ – tangible activities to do
  • navigation through the booth using Sustainable Development Goalss and creative disciplines (eg this activity is of importance on nr 3 of the SDGS)
  • mixing creative disciplines (eg fashion, maker space, photography, robotics, nature,…)
  • recycled materials as base for most activities
  • new: newspaper for people to take away referring to activities, partners, people, school programs
  • robotics programming using Addictlab’s ‘digitangible’ methodology
  • fun & educational, such as: play minigolf by programming your Sphero robot
  • schools can register and reserve activities on Friday
