NØRD LABS

 

Group members:  Ea Svenning Zimmer & Lærke Holmgård

 

 

We have been working as a project leader at a newly started organisation called Orange Innovation, which is born out of Roskilde Festival. We have been working in the children’s department MadeByKids, which do different summer camps for children aged 9-13 years old. In collaboration with DR (Danish Television and Radio), We have developed the concept of Nørd Labs and executed two events with a total of 400 participants.

Nørd Labs has sprung out from the popular Danish Children’s TV show “NØRD” and is an extension of NØRDCAMP, a 3-day Summer camps aimed at children, aged 9 – 13 years old. Nørd labs is for the whole family and takes place over the course of a weekend, 3 times a year, in different locations at Sjælland.

Our vision is to make families excited about science, by creating a playful learning-by-doing space. We strive to keep the imaginative mind of the child alive, by stimulating their fantasy through creative activities. Nørd Labs wishes to excite and awaken children’s curiosity, encourage them to experiment and gain confidence in daring to take risks and “get their hands dirty”. Nørd Labs aspires to help children explore their skills and abilities both as individuals and as a team.

 

Professionally, what are the most important things you have learned, as a result of carrying out this project?

Scoping a project – knowing the limitations of my project and expectations from my client. Useful both when we wished to do more than was expected, but also the other way around. A clear project scope supported me in sticking to the reality I was in.

 

What are the most important things that you have learned, about yourself, as a result of carrying out this project?

The classic, I will always be my own worst critic no matter what.
