The main theme of the Cabinet of wonders project are unusual and outdated objects, interpreted using modern artistic ways of expression, digital manufacturing technologies and museum methodologies by the participants of the workshop. 

The mentors suggested strange, unusual or technically outdated object to children who have then made up their own stories about them and presented it in drawing, spoken word, sound or light. By doing this, they’ve mastered the use of new manufacturing technologies and electronics. The RogLab project that has connected eleven elementary school children and six mentors for six months every Thursday afternoon, helped the children enter the world of new technologies and project work, while also establishing a critical stance towards digital technologies during the pedagogical proces, and delving into the technological and cultural heritage /RogLab/
