Kids@Ubicomp2016: Computing is Changing How we Live
Session: Thursday, Sep. 15, 16:00-17:30

Hands-on session with the BBC micro:bit

On Thursday afternoon we offer a special event for children (age 6-14) at the conference. We will have a guided tour through the poster and demo exhibition for children explaining how computers are going to change the way we live. After the tour we do a hands on design session with children on “dreaming up” new devices. We will have a German speaking as well as an English speaking group. Depending on the number of children we will split up into more groups.
This is open to children of participants of the conference. We ask to register interest in the event by email, please sent an email with the subject “Kids at Ubicomp2016” to We meet a the registration desk on at 16:00 on Sep. 15.
