VCLA participates in FFG-funded project “Transformer”

The Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms (VCLA) will participate in the project “Transformer”, which has received approval following the FFG call Co-Creation Spaces Climate & Energy. For this project, six faculties of TU Wien will team up to offer extracurricular learning opportunities with a focus on the environment. Children and teenagers will actively participate in the revitalization of a vacant building in Vienna, which will then be used as a creative learning space for all kinds of activities. Participants will develop a responsibility for living organisms as well as an understanding of cycles and synergy effects through unrestricted, joint trying out, learning and practicing in a wholly new learning environment. We believe that young people should participate in the creation of a healthy and environmentally friendly future, and be guided on this path in the best possible way, so that challenges can be accepted optimistically and are also allowed to be fun. Young students will gain hands-on experience in many different fields such as architecture, electronics, and computer science, which may positively influence their career choice. Children will become active citizen scientists, allowing them to conduct research and acquire new skills.
