Experiment days are the core of our education-orientated offerings. Equipped with extensive experience in the fields of research and development, we create several “experiment hours” or even entire “experiment days” for classes or groups of students. A short overview of the respective topic is followed by a longer practical section for creative testing.
Since we promote adolescents’ personal initiative and creativity, we do not use previously established instructions. The “young talents” receive materials and tools and are instructed to develop their own ideas for solving the task. They are accompanied by our ROYOUTH team.
Fine Motor Skills Soldering Exercises
In the beginning, the adolescents “write” their names
solder on a board in order to learn to handle the
and solder. Afterwards, fantasy figures
or electronic circuits
such as a die, a memory game or a roulette wheel can be
built with wired components. Depending on their experience
and talent in using the soldering iron, we have prepared kits
with different levels of difficulty for the young people.
Discover the Art of Paper Folding
From simple helicopters to perfect gliders: following the
prepared design, we approach folding and construction
paper planes as a shared, fun activity. The adolescents
also showcase the flying ability of their own design.
end, we measure to see which model is the most
and thus flies the farthest. In addition, participants will try out
various folding techniques of origami art, creating animals,
boxes, flowers and imaginative figures from sheets of paper.
Building Marble Tracks
The task is to build a marble track on which the marble
as long as possible. There are no building
help with this task – the young people
are asked to develop
their own construction from
different materials. Here, they
can work creatively in
small teams and have enough time
optimize their courses. At the end, we stop
times of their marbles.
Build Your Own Wind Turbine
Using provided materials but without building
the young people work together in teams
to construct a
wind turbine. They then compete by
comparing which plant
generates the most energy.
The voltage is determined using
Creativity in Bridge-Building
After being briefed on the way different bridges
participants are tasked with constructing
their own bridges.
The aim is to find the best compromise
between the bridge’s
own weight and its load capacity.
At the end of the day, the
bridges’ performance and load
limit are tested.
Arduino Programming Course
A typical Arduino board with ROYOUTH’s own
(Shield) helps the adolescents to find an
programming. We provide the hardware
support. We are pleased to offer these
courses on two to
three consecutive days during school
breaks or as a school
Build Your Own Soapbox Model
In this workshop, we construct our own small soapbox
models. After a short introduction, creativity is what is
required. The aim behind the developed ideas is to let the
model drive as far as possible from a ramp. A wide variety
of materials is available for the young people to use. We
measure the distances with a laser.
