Kids Uni is . . .
a program for explorers between 6 and 16 years old. In the three ‘semesters’ so far, the kids have experimented with noise, muddy treasures, materials, walks and cartographic exercises, and got familiar with the Floating site, its many inhabitants, and neighbors.
Languages : We are happy to operate in many different languages: German, English, Turkish, Italian, Spanish… contact: kids(a)floating-berlin.org
Cooperation with Trickmisch and Nachbarschaftshaus Neukölln am Körnerpark
Kids of Nachbarschaftshaus Neukölln took over the Rainwaterbasin during autumn-holidays. Together with water-artist Katherine Ball and biology students Selina Seyd and Helene Köhnen from Potsdam they explored the water and its inhabitants and developed animation clips out of it.

FLOATING BUILDING SPORTS
Building-workshop with artist and association’s member Martin Kaltwasser
Dec 4th 15 – 17 Uhr, Dec 5th 11 – 16 Uhr, Dec 6th 12 – 17 Uhr
Age: 8 – 12
Experiences and non experienced children invited: who wants to use collected and donated wood to build sports equipment and constructions that have never existed before and that fit in the special rain basin reed landscape of Floating University? Together with artist Martin Kaltwasser, you can imagine funny, but also handy, strong and crazy constructions and gadgets we can use for completely new sport disciplines or we improve and expand the known ones.
Martin Kaltwasser mostly works in public spaces and his main interests are installation, object, design, performance, architecture and urban research. His projects grow with partizipation and he passionately works with waste from urban areas.
In cooperation with Jugendkunstschule FRI-X-BERG.
