Experiments on everyday topics

with Claudia Bousset and Nele Kister

SaltWaterSun – That’s what we think of when we think of summer. And this is what we will be looking at more closely: texts, experiments, and interactive tasks with MINT-emphasisis for kids up to 12 years of age. The selection of topics and experiments take into account the childrens’ lifeworld. The workshop will be supported by the magazine “Lingo macht MINT“, which was published by the eduversum publishing house. The Goethe Institut e.V. is the co-publisher of the magazine, and it is promoted by the Auswärtiger Amt. Nele Kister and Claudia Bousset will introduce the children to experiments, discussions and texts throughout the workshop. All participants will receive a copy of the magazine.

Claudia Bousset, born in 1966, works as a program manager for various cultural projects. Together with a small team, she has developed a “YouthSalon” for “das salonfestival,” in which she presents current topics for children and teens.

Nele Kister, born 1965, works as an author and editor for educational media for Eduversum GmbH and is involved in the project “HanisauLand” (a website featuring political education offers for children), for which she develops additional classroom-teaching materials for professional educators in schools.
