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.

WORKSHOP 1: THE GIANT DOME
LET’S BUILD A GIANT DOME!
Help us to figure out how to build Experience Workshop's Event Space, a 3 meters high, 5 meters wide geodesic dome from almost 1000 separate modules! We will use the Korean 4Dframe for building! The result will be a structurally similar construction, like the wireframe of the world largest ice dome, which was realised in Finland in 2014 by the Dutch architect Arno Pronk and his international team.

When we are ready, let's go inside the dome and continue to explore the fun-world of maths&arts through play, collaborative problem-solving & iterative design.

DATE: 15 August
10.00-11.30 max. 25-30 participants, age: 12+

13.00-14.30 max. 25-30 participants, age: 12+

15.00-16.30 Dome building workshop for public

WORKSHOP 4: 4DFRAME WARKA WATER TOWER
Learn how to harvest clean water from thin air with the help of modern design: make your own Warka Water tower using 4DFrames!

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.

WORKSHOP 6: SNOWFLAKES - FROZEN MATHS!
When we see a beautiful winter landscape we know that snow has fallen. But what is snow?
Snow is “solid” rain. It forms when fine drops of very cold water attached themselves to dust particles or to bacteria and then freeze. This situation occurs within clouds at or below -12 degrees celsius,

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.

DATE: 17 August
15.00-16.30 max. 25-30 participants, age: 6+
