BioCyberKidzz

Workshop Description for catalogue / web-site (1500 characters)

DRAFT

Body modifications, enhancing human performance, Marvel comics super heroes, from stellarc to special olympics

The children will be introduced to a laboratory environment where the lab becomes less of an intimidating space and more of a space to spark their curiosity.

The 'BioCyberKidzz' workshop has been developed as a result of collective brainstorms of many individuals and communities that are devoting their rich experiences in creating the alternative crossovers between arts and science. BioTehna is a platform to initiate curiosity and encourage experimentation and research in the field of life sciences. Through creative and innovative combinations between nature and technology and the inspiring guidance of artists and researchers.

Modules

Body Hacking for Kids

Bio-Accoustic Ear amplifier

This is a biologically inspired simple hearing amplifier built with cardboard that augments a directional perception of sound.

Disco-on-a-Fingertip

Seeing with your finger? Let's try to modify our fingers into torches, disco lights or fluorescence detectors!

Magnetic Finger

They will build body extenstions that will augment their touch perception and add a new sense of magnetism.

The Lab Book (mbe leave this out...)

Recording observations is an important aspect of laboratory life. This module will teach them to collect and record data.
