Project Summary

TechnikBasteln is an innovative and interdisciplinary project which is focused on children. They are accompanied by us in experiencing, learning about, and understanding information and communication technologies (ICT) in workshops. Among other topics, these workshops address how computers and mobile phones work, the structure of the Internet, and how to safely use these tools and technologies.

This project Web site serves as an expanded online reference and as a place for providing feedback on the workshops and documenting them. Thereby it enables universal public access to these educational resources.

Why? In order to enable society to fully benefit from the use of ICT it is necessary for young, primary-school age children to engage with them. Only those who understand the basics of ICT and its applications will be able to use them independently, safely, and effectively.
