Experience technology and natural sciences up close
Tinkering, experimenting and experiencing
tunBasel is an interactive world of adventure for children and young people that awakens interest in technology and natural sciences in a playful way. At the experience show, well-known institutions show exciting and challenging experiments to marvel, research and discover on an area of more than 1,100 m2. School classes with teachers and accompanying persons as well as children and adolescent with their parents – everyone is welcome at tunBasel.
«Try it yourself» is the motto
tunBasel is part of the Muba, which will take place for the last time in 2019. As an experience laboratory, tunBasel is supposed to introduce today’s children and adolescents to exciting and very varied professions in technology and natural sciences in a playful way, in order to point out their attractiveness and thus counteract the shortage of skilled workers.

Communicating with Robots
As Impact Hub Basel, we were involved in tunBasel together with and on behalf of the Fondation Botnar. During our Robotics Experiments, young people starting from the age of 12 can research robots and their interactions with the world in around 15 minutes. With the support of their talents from the ICT Campus, the ICT Scouts lead the experiments with Nao, Alpha and Ozobot.
Playful experience how Ozobot, Nao and Alpha became part of our living environment:
In the first project, you can drive, steer and stop robots on a road network.
In the second project “Humanoid Robotics” you communicate with Nao. You do not program here, but enter into an interactive exchange with him.
In the third project, you are guiding the robot Alpha by “programming” through an obstacle course.
Computational Thinking refers to a person’s individual ability to identify a problem and model it abstractly, thereby breaking it down into sub-problems or steps, designing and elaborating solution strategies and formalizing and presenting them in such a way that they can be understood and carried out by a person or a computer.
