Tesla for kids

Tesla for Kids activities are a wonderful way to show kids that learning the history of science and strategy can be fun. These activities include video projections, interactive lectures and art workshops  that are both interesting and educational. On November 28th 2014, Mirjana Prljevic (Teslianum president) and Aleksandar Protic (Tesla Memory Project Director), after a movie on Nikola Tesla, talked about the legacy of Nikola Tesla, and strategy in the elementary school Prince Stefan Lazarevic in Belgrade. Afterwards, pupils had participated to an art workshop, conserving memory on this project, and creating Tesla art. Many thanks to the educator Jasmina Bajcetic and the school principal Zorica Zdravkovic Jovanovic for making this project possible.
