In weeks 29 and 30, we arrange a three-day summer school for children that will begin in 5.-7. class. Over the course of three days, the children learn about innovation, technology and sustainability through cool experiments.
ICE mini summer school is arranged under the auspices of Sør-Varanger Utvikling (SVU). This summer, SVU has hired two students, one of whom is Ane Mikkelsen, who will be responsible for this year's summer school.
Ane says that they will place great emphasis on innovation and new thinking, so that the children will have opportunities to create something:
- This summer school will have current topics, where children can acquire practical skills such as coding, sewing and cooking. We plan for the children to be part of the project development, so that they too must think innovatively.
The first day is the theme of technology. This will be adapted based on age group and interest. The second day is redesign on the agenda, where sustainable clothing production is an important theme. Here, the children will get an introduction to the importance of sustainable clothing, in addition to being able to produce something themselves. The third and final day is the theme of sustainable food:
- We throw away far too much food in Norway, this is something the children should be able to take a closer look at and make sustainable food, says Ane.
The summer school is a free activity offer. Prior knowledge is required to participate, and the program will be adapted to each individual child's level.
Do the children have to bring an adult?
-No, we provide lunch and the material the kids may need, confirms Ane, and goes on to say that when the children are registered, there will be more info about any preparations.
