Edutainment | Science Lab – Kids exploring the world

Workshop for Kids and Teens
with Ulrike Albrecht und Team

Why does a compass always point north? Why does the sound of thunder come after you see the lightning? Why do icebergs float? Why do things fall to the ground, and why do raindrops get stuck on branches,..... why.... why…why?

Children have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and want to discover and understand the world with all their senses. The ScienceLab educational institution at Schloss Elmau offers a research program for preschoolers and elementary school-age children to explore interesting phenomena in nature, technology and the environment, and to show the what’s behind the amazingness.

In our ScienceLab experimentation courses, the children can ask questions and speculate about the prepared topics at any time, and test their own hypotheses with exciting experiments. The curious young researchers are supported by well-educated course instructors, and guided to find their answers independently with targeted questions. This lets the children immediately incorporate the experience into their own real-life world and benefit from the fact that they figured it out themselves. Besides the joy that the kids experience in the process, they simultaneously take on board the tools for an analytical approach to questions as they journey through life, as well as the insight that “research is fun!”

During the Research Weeks, e.g., the following topics will be on the agenda:

Exciting Electricity
The Blue Planet
Humans and Their Senses
Invisible Things in Our World


We look forward to a lot of curious researchers!
