Playing is great but learning is boring?
Not anymore! In Vienna, a lot of work is going into research to make learning fun and easy. Many companies have already developed new ways to make learning easier and to make research simple for everyone to understand.
At the Research Festival, there are also opportunities for playful learning – such as about how robots are built and programmed, how to control a game using only your brain, and how to fly drones.

Talk to a robot? Yes, this robot points to things in the room and asks you what they mean for you personally. By doing so, it learns to assign and measure responses and assess them in the room.
