On May 15, Salzburg Research received a visit from children from a kindergarten nearby. 13 kids got an insight into the work of DOIT!
Cardboard, lenses, tape and a few pens: how to create a dream world in 3D from these things? Children could experience this at the DOIT stand at the MakerDays in theStadt:Bibliothek Salzburg!
We were all looking forward to our second project meeting, followed by two-day long practice partner days of DOIT:
At Friday, 2018-03-03, DOIT supported the regular maker days event for kids from 8 to 12 years in Salzburg’s library (Austria). The first day stood under the motto “co-design your world”. Children draw and developed 360 degree worlds and had a look on it through their own-built cardboard VR googles.
The Makerdays in Salzburg will take place in March under the motto “Analog meets Digital”. On March 2, DOIT will hold a workshop on the theme of “(Co-)designing the world”. Stop by if you want to create your own world with 360° pictures! Continue reading “DOIT workshop at MakerDays in Stadt:Bibliothek Salzburg (2018-03-02)”
DOIT was already mentioned within some of DOIT’s partners publication but the first “only DOIT” publication within a journal is available now as well: A short description of DOIT within Austria’s journal “medienimpulse“. Of course DOIT’s publication is freely available (and open licenced).
The journal’s editors feature DOIT contribution with the following words (translated by DeepL):

Besides the project partners, we had a very special guest on the first day: Our project officer from the European Commission joined us to give us interesting input about our deliverables and also about formal requirements. She even supervised our project game! Continue reading “We kicked it off! – Kick-off meeting in Amsterdam (2017-10-30/31 at Waag Society)”
Starting today, the DOIT project starts its project kick-off meeting. 13 partners from Europe will join the meeting hosted by the Waag Society in Amsterdam. Some of them know each other from several other projects. Others will see them the first time.
