On 12 September 2015, Federal President Joachim Gauck invited people to attend the fourth Citizens' Festival in the park and Bellevue Palace in Berlin. There was a wide range of fringe events taking place under the banner "Palace Open Day". MobileKids has also been there.
On the bicycle course at the Carl-von-Ossietzky School in Berlin, the children learn to ride a bicycle correctly – and have lots of fun in the process. The project combines road safety with play, thereby setting a good example in safety education.
Not only adults are behind the wheel at the DTM race event. In the MobileKids traffic safety school the kids were able to demonstrate their driving skills and obtain the kid's driving licence.
At the 100-year celebration for the Sindelfingen plant there was also plenty on offer for the junior visitors from MobileKids besides the sunshine. The kids particularly enjoyed the road safety circuit, the button station and the buzzer game.
MobileKids was a guest at the city of games in Frankfurt! Here the kids were able to enjoy an exciting road safety quiz, colouring images of Moki and making their own buttons.
As part of the 2014/2015 MobileKids School Days, the German-French elementary school in Sillenbuch, Stuttgart was to become "car-free". This is because many parents brought their children directly to the school gates by car – thereby endangering the other children. A cleverly conceived reward system caused the parents to rethink their behaviour.
True to their adopted motto "Taking responsibility for one another", two classes from the third year of Brander Feld elementary school mentored the first-year children, providing them with help and advice. This interdisciplinary peer-to-peer approach won this year's MobileKids School Days.
