Creating with VilVite - Festival square

Creating with VilViteFestival square

Performance type: 
​3 h

​Want to make music or build and experiment?

​When VilVite comes to the Festival square with lots of activities, it's all about what you can create yourself. On and around the outdoor stage at Torgallmenningen, there will be an open play and learning space where children of all ages can explore, develop, and have fun together by experimenting with technology and natural sciences.

Here, you can join in and create music in the music workshops LydLab and Kreativt instrumentverksted (creative music workshop). In LydLab, you can work magic by programming music with Soundtrap. In the instrument workshop, you can produce tones and music from unconventional items used as instruments. How about creating sound with aluminum foil? Or can you make music out of something you can eat?

In addition, you can explore how energy works when you, together with others, build a large chain reaction. Can you get all the pieces to fall, both downward and upward? Your creativity can also be unleashed among thousands of blocks at the Lego tables, and the youngest ones can have fun programming the little robot Bee-Bot.

What exciting things is the show host going to do in the science show? Will there be flames, bangs, and smoke? You get to decide!
