Partners & Cooperations
Together with our partners, we have success stories to tell
We have implemented the following projects with the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO:
Makethons Ludwigsburg (Pilot)
Digital labs KIC@BW
Mobile lab for Digilabs
Tinkertank is a cooperation partner of the project "CoWiki reloaded". Here, together with experts from the network of open workshops, basic principles for a "gold standard" for safe working with tools, machines and materials are being developed. Together with partner workshops, practice-oriented and modularly adaptable educational materials are being developed and made freely available as open educational resources.
In the context of the idea competition Baden-Württemberg Idee-BW - initiated by the Kindermedienland Baden-Württemberg - we have been awarded with our idea of a public training as mentor for maker spaces. We are proud and happy and very much looking forward to the implementation.
For the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, its Animationsinstitut and the Academy of Performing Arts, we designed the opening week of the winter semester 2021/22 for 100 new students with a creative workshop lasting several days. We also regularly organise workshops for the international training programme Animation Sans Frontières and for the third-year students of the Animationsinstitut.
tuduu.org offers numerous video tutorials and is the digital platform for kids, teens and adults who want to tinker, create and build. All content is freely accessible at all times and free of charge, the craft instructions can be downloaded, printed out, and implemented at home and at school.
Volt, Paper, Scissors!
Volt, Paper, Scissors! uses low-tech materials for high-tech education and is aimed at teachers and parents. On specially designed print templates, children glue circuits with novel electroconductive tape and fold them into robots, games and gadgets.
In their podcast (in German), Julian and Nils tell each other about their current tinkering projects. It's all about "making" - hardware, with software and of course lots of hot glue. Sometimes they invite guests to discuss a special tinker topic with them. They are happy about interested people joining them. Young and old, hobbyists and professionals - all are invited!
