Melkweg Junior Play your food! Mini tech workshops for kids

Play your food on January the 18th, at Helemaal Melkweg Junior. Kids are finally allowed to play with their food! Lava Lab organised, in collaboration with Curious Monkeys, a workshop for kids where technology, vegetables and fruits are combined. During this day, kids were able to turn vegetables and fruits into musical instruments or create their own voice samples using the invention kit MaKey MaKey. They were able to learn about the code and manipulate it, in a fun and easy program, called Scratch.

Lava Lab and Curious Monkeys created installations for this event, like:


  • The robot music game
  • Broccoli drums
  • Aubergine and carrot triangle

‘Helemaal Melkweg Junior’ is an event where kids can experience the full building of the Melkweg, a music venue based in Amsterdam. It’s a day full of music, dance, theatre, technology, e.g.
