ClicBots are small, modular educational robots that can see, feel, hear, think and communicate with their environment. Bring your ClicBot to life and build your own characters: whether humanoid, with wheels or even a robot dog. The possibilities are almost endless.
With the accompanying graphics-based app, you can teach it all kinds of things. No matter how you train your ClicBot, it is the coolest robot you can imagine. There are (almost) no limits to your creativity!

We look forward to receiving your registration!

For boys - Experience AI in 3 lessons

We dive into the fascinating world of media informatics!

We discover how artificial intelligence can inspire our creative side and how diverse its applications are in art and the visual field. Using example applications, we will use AI in the creative environment as well as in machine vision.
Together we'll discuss how AI could have both positive and negative effects on our society.
Bring your ideas and let your creativity run wild in this exciting workshop!
