Building rocket cars, discovering collapsible smartphones, gazing into space, finding treasure on campus, and trying out soccer... Once again, kids & teens in the JKU Science Holidays summer program experienced a wide variety of activities and learning opportunities. JKU Rector Meinhard Lukas remarked: "Knowledge and progress comes about when we foster a sense of curiosity and learning through play. This requires giving children and young people the space they need to make discoveries, conduct research, and be physically active. Children between the ages of six and fourteen experienced hands-on science, technology, law, medicine, business, social issues, and biology first hand by taking part in exciting experiments, origami, quidditch lessons, nutrition workshops, soccer training sessions, and even magic shows. There was no time to be bored!"
