Traffic Safety Zone
Learning by seeing and doing
Young visitors to the DAF Museum can learn to deal with various traffic situations in a playful way with the help of modern teaching aids and interactive media in the purpose-built DAF Traffic Safety Zone.
Various aspects of traffic knowledge and traffic safety are dealt with. There are, for example, video-films about the blind spots of trucks and buses, how to behave in traffic and the dangers of traffic. Besides, the young visitors can playfully test their knowledge of traffic rules on personal computers.
The teaching programme is meant for primary school pupils (starting from 6th-formers) and for 1st-form secondary school pupils. The programma consists of a theoretical lesson, followed by a practical lesson, in which the pupils are asked to build a cross roads and a round-about. There is also an interactive lesson in which modern media are used. The programme takes about two hours and is supervised by traffic experts.
Special wishes and points of particular interest can be included in the programme, always taking the age of the pupils into account. In this way specific traffic situations or circumstances, for example around the childrens' school, can be dealt with.
After the lessons a short guided tour of the Museum can be arranged.
