What is the Digitalwerkstatt?

The Digitalwerkstatt is a creative education and experience space. Here, children between the ages of 6 and 12 can discover the digital world playfully and develop important skills in the field of new technology.

In our courses and workshops, children learn programming, build robots, experiment with 3D printing, create Animated Movies and much more!

We also offer workshops for parents, teachers, and everyone interested in education. Our program includes school courses that focus on the conception and realisation of digital projects, which are integrated into the daily curriculum. These take place at the Digitalwerkstatt in the mornings.


Where can I find a Digitalwerkstatt?

The first Digitalwerkstatt opened 2016 in Berlin. By now there is one in Munich, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Lippstadt.

Our Goals and Values

It is our aim to enable children to operate actively and confidently in the digital world. In the Digitalwerkstatt, they learn to use computers and tablets as creative tools, and are supported in the realisation of their own ideas.

The Digitalwerkstatt is a secure space in which children are guided through the digital world in an age appropriate manner. Under the wings of experienced media pedagogues, they can develop a conscious approach to new technology.

An individual approach and careful attention to the children is of heartfelt importance to us. Our trainers work in teams and with small groups. They ensure a cherished atmosphere and ample movement, breaks, and interaction.

Digitalwerkstatt is also a place where parents and teachers can find competent communication partners. Together, we want to find new and creative ways of making education in the realm of digital technology as fruitful as possible.


Why should children learn programming?


The future is digital

Computers already help us reach to space stations and perfectly knead dough. Digital tools are operational and essential in almost all professions by now. An understanding of the processes behind this makes it easier for children to find their way in the world.



Actively shaping the world

Through programming, kids learn to recognise problems and how to solve them. They experience themselves as active and competent, and develop into people who have the ability to shape their world.




Programming is fun

Whoever likes crafting will love coding! With digital tools, children will not only be able to create figures and objects, but also animate them to sing and jump. That is real fun, and enjoyable for adults too.
