The growing need for housing in the Netherlands comes with a new set of challenges for planners and designers on how to design new buildings in a country that already has every square inch planned out and dedicated. This lack of building land naturally leaves us with the question on how to increase the density in the city without overburden its...

If the hustle and bustle in the cityscape of London were a movie, than the public space is the stage and the urban texture its décor. The movie would be about culture - city life - and the people who are in it will be its social actors. the different identities of the social actors makes the film heterogeneous by nature.<br/>But there is an...

Drawing on risk methods from volcano crises, we developed a rapid COVID-19 infection model for the partial return of pupils to primary schools in England in June and July 2020, and a full return in September 2020. The model handles uncertainties in key parameters, using a stochastic re-sampling technique, allowing us to evaluate infection...

A recently published simulation-based study has demonstrated the effect of an individually controlled noise-reducing device (ICND) on improving acoustic quality in classrooms. As a follow-up research, this current study aims to develop a real ICND and test it with its target users-- primary school children. The prototype developed in this study...

Literature shows that both building systems and occupants’ behaviour contribute to the amount of energy used to create a comfortable indoor environment. To determine possible relationships, energy consumption of nine school buildings was studied in relation to identified building characteristics, self-reported frequency of teachers’ actions, and...

Only 32% of the Dutch primary schools do something with programming, despite its benefits on students’ skills, job opportunities, understanding of the world, and diversity. Primary school teachers not getting involved with programming education can be caused by a lack of belief in their teaching programming abilities. The belief in your own...

Previous studies have shown that next to ‘human smell’, ‘stuffy air’ is one of the discomforts that children report in classrooms. Besides, people’s olfactory system is able to recognize the perceived odour intensity of various materials relatively well and in many cases the nose seems to be a better perceiver of pollutants than some equipment....

Hembrug was back in the days responsible for the production and storage of weapons and ammunition for the Dutch army. The location has been chosen very carefully by the Stelling of Amsterdam and nowadays it is located between the two big growing cities Amsterdam and Zaandam. Because of is secrecy and abandoned, Hembrug can been seen as a new...

To study the combined effect of different environmental factors on children in a classroom setting, 250 children from seven primary schools were exposed to 36 different environmental configurations (‘all’ and ‘fewer’ acoustical panels; ‘displacement’ and ‘mixing’ ventilation; sound type: ‘children talk’, ‘traffic’, and ‘none’; and ‘direct’, ...

Indoor environmental quality (IEQ) in classrooms can have an effect on school children’s comfort, health, and performance. In most classrooms, the teacher is the only one who can take actions to change the IEQ. The objective of this study was to identify what teachers usually do to improve IEQ in classrooms and how these actions relate to...

This paper aims to design an “individually controlled system” (ICS) for children in class-rooms based on their preferences and needs. It is well known that a higher satisfaction of in-door environmental quality (IEQ), including thermal, air, visual and acoustical quality, can be achieved by giving occupants control over their local environment....

Robots play an increasingly large role in society and some material already exists that allows children to program robots in elementary school. However, this material often neglects the interactive capabilities of modern robots. The aim of this project is to teach children how to write interactive programs for a robot. For this purpose, a NAO...

A large problem that primary schools face is that the ratio of pupils to teachers is too high, the class sizes are too large and this makes it difficult for a single teacher to have a good oversight of how the development of a given child is going. The aim of Interactive Robotics is to tackle this problem by bringing robots into the classroom to...
