Thymio est un petit robot qui te permettra de découvrir l’univers de la robotique et d’apprendre le langage des robots. Tu pourras le programmer et réaliser de nombreuses expériences. Avec Thymio, la programmation et les bases de la robotique deviennent des notions abordables à tout âge.
Learn to program Sphero SPRK+, create your own track and start a race – You can even use it in water!
Cet objet connecté permet à la fois de s’amuser comme on le ferait avec une petite voiture pilotée par un téléphone et d’apprendre tout doucement les bases de la programmation façon “scratch” ainsi que quelques mots d’anglais nécessaires à comprendre certaines missions données par l’application.
Build your own scribbling machine using recycled containers – experiment with their shape and sizes to get different results. Customize your scribbling machine with funny accessories to make it unique!
Solar & Led light workshops
Makey makey workshops
Makey Makey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It’s a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything inbetween.
How does it work?
Alligator Clip two objects to the Makey Makey board. For example, you and a banana.
When you touch the banana, you make a connection, and Makey Makey sends the computer a keyboard message. The computer just thinks Makey Makey is a regular keyboard (or mouse). Therefore it works with all programs and webpages, because all programs and webpages take keyboard and mouse input.
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints. The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide.
The English scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel discovered the procedure in 1842. Though the process was developed by Herschel, he considered it as mainly a means of reproducing notes and diagrams, as in blueprints.
Anna Atkins created a series of cyanotype limited-edition books that documented ferns and other plant life from her extensive seaweed collection, placing specimens directly onto coated paper and allowing the action of light to create a silhouette effect. By using this photogram process, Anna Atkins is sometimes considered the first female photographer.
Your final version will be printed on a Open Box paper, turning your picture into an instant framed master piece.
Workshop from 7 years to 107 – weather permitting.
The Tetra Pak Camera is an initiative of CineGlobe, the International Film Festival at CERN. This workshop teaches the fundamentals of photography through the conversion of an old Tetra Pak milk carton into a pin-hole camera. The photograph is then developed in situ with a non-toxic mix of coffee and vitamin C.
This eco-friendly project is fun for both adults and children, and requires no special tools or materials. Upload your photos online and join our Tetra Pak Camera community!
Creative Chemistry Cards
The Creative Chemistry table consists of 145 disciplines or human ‘capabilities’, and about 50 character cards. This card set is a concrete package from a proven methodology to allow groups of people and individuals to think out of the box. The aim : mixing creative disciplines, to get inspiration from other fields and cultures, and obtain more depth in the creation process.
