2016 Summer Program for Kids at the JKU

Once again, the Department of Gender & Diversity Management at the JKU and Kidsversity (flexible childcare services) offered an extensive and engaging summer program of activities for students' and employees' children between the ages of one to twelve.

From August 1 - 26, 2016, our one to six-year-olds spent part of the summer holiday in a program that included games, fun, and many physical activities.
The six to twelve-year-olds took part in an entertaining program comprised of various hands-on and educational activities:

The First Week of Adventure focused on fauna and flora. The kids explored the world of plants and during a visit to the Linz Beekeepers Association, the kids even got to open up a real beehive. The kids also learned why woodpeckers don't get headaches.

The Second Week of Adventure focused on fun, physical activities – the climbing wall was very popular.

The Third Week of Adventure gave the kids insight into the world of science and the young researchers explored questions such as: why do planes have to lightweight? How can individual cows be located in a barn holding many animals? What products contain plastics? How many 6 to 12-year-olds live in Austria now and how many were there 20 years ago?

The Fourth Week of Adventure gave the kids an opportunity to try their hand at arts and crafts and make pottery. The kids also got to train a Red Cross rescue dog and some brave kids even allowed themselves to be searched for by the dogs. The kids also learned First Aid and tour of the waterworks facility provided new information and insight about water. The summer holiday program kept the kids busy and entertained while parents were at work.

We would like to especially thank the following partners who worked together with us to provide the kids with exciting activities:
