Experience Workshop’s 4Dframe Re-Bots are debuting on Europe’s largest STEM education fair, Science on Stage in 2017
October 7-9, 2016, the Hungarian division of Europe’s largest international STEM education festival, Science on Stage has selected Experience Workshop’s 4Dframe Re-bot project led by Ákos Vecsei, to represent Hungary in Science on Stage 2017. With Re-bot toolkit, children from the age of 5 are able to design, build and program robots by recycling simple household waste items or by[…]
“A real child can go to bed–yet still build towers in its head.” – wrote Marvin Minsky, the father of Artificial Intelligence, who has started to train his robot arm by block playing in the end of the 1960s. Just some years before Minsky’s experiments, Zoltán Paul Dienes has published his book “Building Up Mathematics” (1961) and suggested[…]
Experience Workshop – Movement for the Experience-Oriented Education of Mathematics and Arts
Experience Workshop has been started in 2008 as a collaborative effort of mathematicians, artists, toy-makers, craftsmen, teachers, parents and children. Over the years, we have grown into an open STEAM community, a professional network of educators, researchers and artists, and a creative art&science agency in the field of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) education and learning.
Experience Workshop develops educational approaches to offer opportunities for children to learn mathematics through the arts, and to create art through mathematics.
We have established International Traveling Exhibitions of Mathematical Art in Hungary and in Finland, which travel with our events. The collection includes artworks, scientific modeling tools, math-art puzzles, and other spectacular objects, which have key-role at our programs.
Experience Workshop events have been successfully organized all over in Europe, North-America and Asia. More than 30,000 people participated in our STEAM education programs.
STEAM education events, festivals, interactive exhibitions, workshops, conferences and seminars in Europe, Asia and America.
Our research interests involve, but not limited to STEM and STEAM education; inquiry-based, cooperative, playful and experience-oriented mathematics education; girls in mathematics, science and coding; connecting problem-solving processes in science and art education; connecting hands-on activities and digital modeling in science, art and design education; science&art connections in learning; phenomenon-based learning and co-teaching; inter-, cross- and transdisciplinary management and trans-curricular leadership in education.
We offer working solutions, excellent tools, applications and expertise in the field of STEAM education.
International references, research and professional network for preparing and managing projects on the field of STEAM education and research.
