Where is the Internet? Can I make my own internet? How much power does it consume? Is it bad for the environment? Hackers & Designers does experiments to find out what a sustainable Internet of the future might look like. Want to join?
Are you between 7-12 years old* and would you like to make a scavenger hunt in and around Page Not Found and the Boekhorststraat? Find your favourite grown up and ask them to apply! We will make wearable wifi networks to hide digital clues. After making the scavenger hunt we will try out the hunt ourselves and look for the clues using our mobile phones!
What can you expect? Young participants will learn to design a scavenger hunt. The grown-up participants will learn how to make mini websites using HTML and put them on mobile wifi modules which we will use to create the digital scavenger hunt.
This event is part of the installation and workshop series “Figuring Things Out Together — Exploring the ‘Workshop’ as a concept and format for collective learning and publishing” organised by Anja Groten of Hackers & Designers.
The workshop is bilingual (Dutch/English), and takes place from 13:00 – 16:00.
What to bring: a laptop computer (plus usb adaptor if your computer requires it) and a smartphone. Bring a buddy! The workshop is set up to participate as a pair (one adult and one young person), and we will need both of your skills and imagination throughout the entire workshop!
Entrance is free. If you want to keep the Wifi Modules you can buy them from for their cost price (€17,00).
Sign up (before 1 June) via: firstname.lastname@example.org – upon sign-up we will send you a more detailed set-up of the program.
*If you are older but think it would be fun and you are happy to work with the other kids, you are welcome too!
