Programs for Schools, Educators, and School Classes.

Do you teach at a primary school, NMS, AHS or BHS school and would like to use creative concepts, new technoloiges and tools in the classroom? Would you also like to give your students unique and COOL external activities?

Then take advantage of our ideas and workshops! The JKU COOL Lab is an educational learning place for all subject areas and grade levels. We offer a wide range of topics that allow you and your students to take on the roles of learners, educators, researchers and developers, depending on their interests. Learn more about innovative technologies, educational tools, and apply COMPUTATIONAL THINKING across all subject areas. You will be paired with experienced researchers at the JKU who can provide you with continual education and tips as well as supplementary expertise in scientific subject areas. We can also provide support to implement the new "Digital Literacy" curriculum. Students can attend workshops, take part in competitions, events and internships and receive additional support to help them think about their future careers.

Workshops for School Classes

Please note: Workshops are currently not being offered due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Schools can take advantage of individual programs or agree to a long-term collaboration as a partner school and receive individual set of measures.

We also organize an annual Children's Congress in June, giving school students a unique opportunity realize their dream and become a researcher. Click here to learn more.

Workshops are generally held at the COOL Lab at the JKU. The fee for a 2-hour workshop is € 4 per participant, € 5 for 3-hour workshops.

In individual cases, the COOL Lab can also come to the school. The fee is € 6 per participant for a 2-hour workshop and € 7 for a 3-hour workshop.

In addition, we can organize theme days at the school (i.e. about basic digital education and/or computational thinking). There is a fee of € 7 per participant for a complete day, including travel expenses. Theme days can only be booked providing the teacher has completed the prep and follow-up work as part of the SCHILF!
