Two workshops for children were developed as a part of the FLARECAST outreach programme addressing project relevant topics such as solar flares, the need for forecasting them and the meaning of magnetogram data. They were tested and refined during twenty summer school classes in Switzerland in 2015 and 2016.
The activities and materials can also be used in other contexts. For example, we created magnet-iron filings sunspot kits as give aways at the European Space Weather Week in 2015.
