Putting the ‘A’ into STEM education, students will be challenged to explore their artistic and creative sides in combination with STEM skillsets. Diverse teams will discover how the arts can interact with technological creativity by blending music, visual arts, performance arts and fashion with enabling Intel technology.
The weekend aims to expose students to the intersection between arts and technology and what can be achieved when innovative ideas and critical thinking is applied in this space, while also inspiring students, expanding their skillset and helping them to grow their networks.
