What is contained in the box? How do you work with it?
Rühl: The world of children is surrounded by plastics more than ever. From toys to smartphones to (sports) clothing. Knowledge about the polymer material, however, is lagging far behind. The suitcase therefore contains five experiments that look at and raise awareness of completely different areas of application for plastics.
In order to be able to use the suitcase optimally, we offer seminars for teachers, for example, in cooperation with other partners. During the pandemic, we digitized this offering. Basically, however, "Kuno" is designed in such a way that teachers can also familiarize themselves with the experiments themselves via the videos on our Kuno website.
In class, the children work through the experiments in a kind of station learning, whereby it is entirely up to the teachers whether they want to carry out all the experiments at once or one experiment every week. The content of the experiments is also based on the curriculum; for example, Experiment 5 "Pocket-sized sewage treatment plant" can be optimally linked to the topic of "Water" in Class 3 or 4.
