For the Summer School trial in the Ontdekfabriek, thirty children have reported from four primary schools in Eindhoven.
The Summer School is designed to improve the language and vocabulary of some pupils during the holidays. That should ensure that they make a good start after the holidays.
The Ontdekfabriek and Korein Group started the Summer School at the request of Eindhoven Municipality. They will soon receive an educational program on the Ontdekfabriek: "The Inventors". It is a mix of practical and theory lessons in an appropriate environment.
The program is very Eindhoven like, with great attention to technology, design and innovation. Especially for this target group, the program expanded in the field of information processing and reading vocabulary.
The program concludes with an exhibition in which the students present their work to their parents and other involved parties.
After the summer, the program will be evaluated. A sequel may roll out of this next year.
