Summer camps at Happylab Vienna

Holiday programme for children aged 8 - 14

→ 2 themed weeks to choose from: "Do it yourself with 3D printing, electronics & textile design" and "Calliope mini - build and programme your robot"

→ Leisure activities depending on your mood and the weather

→ One-week holiday care including catering

"Calliope mini - Build and programme your robot" programme

During the workshop, participants will get to know the Calliope mini and learn how to read sensor data, control LEDs and sounds and connect motors. We use the browser-based MakeCode editor as a programming environment, which enables the children to fully control the microcontroller and integrate a variety of sensors - including light, temperature and compass sensors.

By arranging blocks of code, children learn to programme the microcontroller and can give free rein to their creativity. But that's not all: with the help of additional components, the Calliope becomes a robot or whatever the children can imagine during the workshop. There are no limits to their imagination!

In the Happylab, the children have the opportunity to get creative with the various devices and materials and make their own robot. Let's explore the world of technology together and realise exciting projects!

In the afternoon, it's off to the park, the museum or a fun park - depending on your mood and the weather!

"Do it yourself with 3D printing, electronics & textile design" programme

The programme includes workshops on 3D printing, electronics and textile design:

  • Holzflitzer Rallye: We start the summer camp with our Holzflitzer Rallye - the car race for makers and all those who want to become one. The children build their own racing car and send it into the race on our 8 metre long CNC-milled track in the Happylab.
  • 3D design & 3D printing: The children design their own 3D models on the computer and can see how they become three-dimensional objects on the 3D printer.
  • Drawdio - Music from a pencil: In just a few steps, the children build their own electronic musical instrument from a normal pencil and a few electronic components.
  • Textile design - Make your own T-shirt: The children use a cutting plotter and transfer press to apply their previously designed motifs to T-shirts. There are no limits to their creativity!
  • Woodturning - Put your hand to the wood: Equipped with an apron, safety goggles and a woodturning knife, the children discover the world of round woodworking. Using the child-safe equipment, everyone turns their own self-made workpiece.
  • Recycling adventure: At the end of the summer camp, the children make new moulds from used plastics. The raw materials are shredded and the children create new moulds by injection moulding, which they can take home with them.

In the afternoon, it's off to the park, the museum or a fun park - depending on their mood and the weather!
