Giving

The miLAB’s creative learning research group is giving back to the community by acting and researching within the field of education and technology. miLAB’s focus is to give children the tools to become creative adults who will fulfill an active role in their communities. We empower children how to learn by themselves, not in standard classrooms and with minimum dependency on formal instructions and to follow their interest and their passion. In our daily activity, we encourage the children to explore new domains by making the latest physical-digital technologies accessible. Through a safe environment of trial and error, children learn to view and use different technologies as a tool for creation and not just consumption.
