Bright Future Foundation: Make learning fun!
2023/09/15 | By Stichting Bright Future
Innovative volunteers at Bright Future Foundation have worked together to create a bilingual interactive book for Dutch and international children. With a non-formal teaching methodology, the book introduces young children to the basics of science… From the structure of the human body and its senses to seasons, weather, and nature.
The inspirational Bilingual Interactive Book has been created as part of the European Union’s (EU) Solidarity Corps Project (a volunteering programme funded by the EU for Europeans aged 18-30) and is a non-profit initiative. The book is a follow on from the Bright Future Foundations’s project Dutch for Non-Dutch which was awarded ‘Best Project of the Year 2021’ by the EU Solidarity Corps Project.
The Bilingual Interactive Book has been illustrated by children aged 9-15 and contains interactive workshops and ‘scientific’ experiments to do together. Thanks to the book’s bilingual format, parents who perhaps don’t speak Dutch can also understand the content – without the need of a dictionary – and can practise Dutch with their children in a fun learning environment.
The Bilingual Interactive Book is available at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (National Library of the Netherland) in The Hague and the Bibliotheek Amstelland (Amstelland Library). In cooperation with old and new partners – and local organisations who work with the same target group – the Bright Future Foundation has created a special programme to introduce the book to readers.
If you work with Dutch or international children and would like to offer them a great learning experience, please contact the Bright Future Foundation to make an appointment for a presentation workshop at your school or organisation. In 2023, such workshops will be provided free-of-charge and a copy of the Bilingual Interactive Book will also be gifted to your school or organisation after the event!
