Kids and teens are signing up to take one or more of over 3,000 summer classes offered at this year’s “KinderUni” summer program at the JKU under the motto “Analog Islands in a Digital Ocean” In the past, a total of over 27,000 kids and teens have taken part in over 3,000 classes offered over the years.
Kids and teens can sign up for a variety of summer classes ranging from how to tell stories on Instagram and how to recognize “fake news” to programmable super-textiles that control smartphones. The workshops and seminars allow participants to learn more about various topics in the area of digitization.
JKU Rector Meinhard Lukas added, "Kids and teens are invaluable ambassadors of digitization and should get full support by experts in how to use this technology appropriately in a healthy and sustainable way. As digital natives, they are growing up playfully in a world of tablets, smartphones, etc. The Linz Institute of Technology (LIT) at the JKU is working to actively contribute to digital transformation.”
