The children explored the forest and the world of computers

ARBAGE. The Arbing Green List organized two very different holiday campaigns with a common goal: to get kids interested in technology and science.

As part of “Experience the world with a computer”, eight to ten year old children from Arbing enthusiastically built a mini computer with various sensors under the guidance of the IDEAS:lab Salzburg team. .

This allowed them to visualize temperature, brightness and movement. There have been some interesting and often surprising results from taking a quiz on photos taken from space and looking through a microscope.

Finally, the still interested children learned, through a practical example, how dangerous it can be to reveal personal data on the Internet.

Forestry up close

Young people aged 10 to 14 first went into the forest. A forester showed how to properly fell a tree and what to consider when “working in the forest”.

How does this tree become a house now? The subsequent tour of the LOC-Holz production hall took place on this topic.

Finally, the most important question of the day was answered: how many trees do you need for an average single-family wooden house?

The answer: between 25 and 30 large spruce trees.
