Our Summer School has been designed to make participants understand and take part in the “Maker Movement”. More specifically, the goal of the program is to help participants build knowledge in the fields of Creative Coding, Design, Generative and Interactive Arts, Digital Manufacturing, Electronics and Robotics in a fun and informal way.

Our program encompasses intensive courses and practical workshops led by our experts as well as Survival French and Pop Inter-culture Workshops. In just three weeks, you will study and work both individually and in teams in a creative and inspiring environment, having free access to our cutting-edge technologies (3D Printers, Laser Cutters, Digital Pen Plotter, Connected Objects, etc.).

At the end of this program, you will have your own robot which will compete against other robots to win the Robot Challenge and have created your own Interactive Art piece. You will also explore Paris, platforms for innovation and new technologies, and meet with the French Makers Community!
