Play, Interact, Cooperate, Discover, and Experience!
The Experience Workshop – Movement for the Experience-Oriented Education of Mathematics and Arts has started in 2008 in Hungary as a collaborative effort of mathematicians, artists, teachers, parents and children. They have organised various math-art-education events and interactive exhibitions, workshops, seminars and trainings all over in Europe, Asia and America. Over the years, more than 30,000 people participated in these events. Experience Workshop’s international network and community has hundreds of active members, like teachers of various subjects, artists, scholars, craftsmen and toymakers from all around the world.
Experience Workshop experiments with various educational approaches to give opportunity to learn mathematics through the arts, and to do art through mathematics. Their aim is to involve the children, teachers, and families into a vibrant and creative dialogue between the mathematical and artistic way of looking at our world.
Experience Workshop’s main research interests involve, but not limited to STEM and STEAM education; inquiry-based, cooperative, playful and experience-oriented mathematics education; connecting problem-solving processes in science and art education; connecting hands-on activities and digital modeling in science, art and design education; science&art connections in learning; phenomenon-based learning and co-teaching; inter-, cross- and transdisciplinary management and trans-curricular leadership in education.
Watch and experience how children take ownership of the space at the Cape Town City Hall and transform it into something magical, using a combination of science, technology, mathematics, art, design and innovation over three days. .SPECIAL GUEST FACILITATORS AND HOST: 1.

WHAT IS THE WARKA WATER TOWER? WARKA WATER TOWER is an environmentally, socially and financially sustainable solution to potable water in Ethiopia and a designed solution that can be replicated anywhere else in the world.
WARKA WATER is an alternative water source to rural population that faces challenges in accessing drinkable water. It is first and foremost an architecture project. WW should not be considered as the solution to all water problems in developing countries but rather as a tool that can provide clean water in selected areas, particularly in mountainous regions where conventional pipelines will never reach and where water is not available from wells. These remote communities, often with limited financial means, struggle to find reliable supplies of clean water for the people, the animals and for agriculture.
WARKA WATER is designed to be owned and operated by the villagers, a key factor that should help guarantee the success of the project. WARKA WATER not only provides a fundamental resource for life – water – but also creates a social place for the community, where people can gather under the shade of its canopy for education and public meetings.http://www.warkawater.org/

The surrounding temperature and humidity influence how each crystal develops:- If it is very cold, with a high level of humidity, six-sided hollow columns will form. - If the weather is warmer, six-sided stars will shape.

To ensure the best experience FOR ALL it is IMPORTANT to: - note the proposed age group per activity for bookings of weekday workshops. Please DO NOT book for children that is younger than the suggested minimum age. - Workshops will be customised to suit the specific age group you are booking for. It is therefore VITAL to complete a separate booking form per age group so that the facilitators can clearly see who they will be working with.
