EXPERIENCE TECHNOLOGY

The Johannes Kepler University (JKU) and the private non-profit foundation Kaiserschild have created "EXPERIENCE TECHNOLOGY", a program for young people designed to spark an interest in technical fields.

The program offers AHS middle school students an opportunity to voluntarily take part in LEGO Mindstorm workshops. Together with JKU students, the school students will work on joint projects in the field of robotics and mechatronics.

The LEGO Mindstorm workshops (robotics) are taught at schools by JKU students outside of school lessons. There are no fees or costs to take part. The LEGO building blocks will remain at the school providing the school students take part in the First Lego League during the 2016/2017 academic year.

The next chance to sign up for 2017 will be in Spring 2017.

Highlights from the closing ceremony of Module 1 on June 30, 2016

21 teams from six higher level secondary schools located throughout Upper Austria brought their homemade robots to the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz to compete at the June 31st finale of "ERLEBE TECHNIK“. Only those robots that could fulfill the required tasks during the preliminary round were able to compete for a podium spot.

 

In the end, Team "Terminal 1" (Europagymnasium Auhof school) came in first while second place went to the team, "Impossible to Beat" (also from the Europagymnasium Auhof school). Team "HEM" (Gymnasium Dachsberg school) took home third place.

Congratulations to everyone who took part!
