Crazy list of all workshops from HLab14

Kinda post-poned / cancelled. :-(

Workshop / DIY microscopy

Kinda cancelled. :-( though it's the best dusjagr has to offer...

BioCyberKidzzz - BodyHacking


Menschen »hacken«, also verändern ihren Körper durch Tattoos, Piercings und mit medizinischen Prothesen schon lange. Durch einfache und spielerische Erweiterungen mit alltäglichen Materialien, wie Pappkartons, Magneten und LEDs können wir die menschlichen Körperleistungen steigern. Wir möchten in unserem spielerischen Kinder-Labor erforschen, ob man mit bio-akustischen Ohren besser hört oder was passiert, wenn man einen magnetischen Finger hat. Am Schluss als Bonus dürfen wir eine menschliche fotosynthetische Haut untersuchen.


Hacking the human body has become commonplace and many people have body modifications such as tattoos, piercings or even advanced medical prosthetics. Simple and playful body hacks that allow enhancing our human performance can be made with just few and cheap materials, such as cardboard, magnets and LEDs. In this playful laboratory setting we will investigate with the children: hearing with a Bio-Acoustics Ear and hacking their touch perception by the Magnetic Finger or a Disco-on-a-Fingertip and finally explore a Photosynthetic Skin.

NanoHacking: Convergence of Life and Tech at the Nanoscale – A Hands-on Introduction for Students


NanoHacking: Die Verschmelzung von Leben und Technologie auf der Nanometerskala - Eine praktische Einführung für Studenten

working on it...


During this course, the students will be introduced into the merging disciplines of of art, science and engineering that meet at the nanoscale. But what is nanotechnology? It promises huge beneficial impact on global health, sustainable energy and novel materials. At the same time utopian visions, science-fiction scenarios and fundamental fears are clashing at discussions in society. Throughout the course, we will lift the fogs of these superficial discussions and through hands-on activities get closer to grasp the world of the small. We will build our own simple DIY (do-it-yourself) optical and electronic instruments to learn more about nanoparticles and nanosensors, how to "see" them, how to "hear" them.

One key aspect of the nanosciences is the fact that the traditional disciplinary borders of physics, biology, engineering, to name a few, are merging. With the current tools and methods of understanding matter on the smallest scales of atoms and molecules, only a true collaborative and transdiscplinary approach can lead to new insight, application and constructive discourse of its societal implications.
