What we do

During the first week, participants will attend one of the available courses. 

During this week they will attend hands-on classes to acquire technical or business skills. During the second week, students from different classes will work in teams to build a product prototype, from both technical and business point of view.

During the last day, all teams will present their business concepts and working products. Besides learning, each evening we organize fun activities (Just Dance party, LAN party, super engineering competitions, sports competitions, etc.) and we also get to visit the surroundings in the two field trips we organize.
