Werkstatt im CityLAB

The “Workshop at the CityLAB” is a space for experiments with methods from the colour palette of electrical engineering and computer science – and everything else that appeals to your creativity. All activities are thematically related to current digital urban issues and are complemented by the production of freely licensed educational materials. The focus is on a participative and inclusive mediation work. All citizens of the city are invited to create the future of the city with coding and hardware “hands on”.

Every last Friday of the month from 5 pm to 8 pm, the creators of the “Workshop at the CityLAB” invite you to an open workshop afternoon with different focus topics. In July 2019 it opened its doors for the first time – on the topic of upcycling! Followed by further workshops, for example for the construction of a GPS tracker, digital street music, bicycle lighting and automated allotment garden paradises for the windowsill at home. In addition, workshops and projects in cooperation with external partners such as the HTW Berlin, the Fliegerwerkstatt or the LoRaWAN community (local radio applications in the IoT area) are being developed in the workshop.

Current events of the “Workshop at the CityLAB” can be found in the event calendars of the Technology Foundation and CityLAB. We are looking forward to all who come and participate! We regularly document the results on the blog and on Github.

With the Workshop in the CityLAB, we are making an offer to Berlin’s citizens to work together on exemplary projects in education and empowerment and to disseminate the content in the form of events, freely licensed educational materials and through implementation in the urban space.
