18. April  – July 2015.   –  Bioelectronics Academy
We are happy to announce the beginning of our Bioelectronics Academy – a standardized one-semester program of extracurricular education for young people with special educational needs (gifted young) in the field of cutting-edge applied science.
The program consists of a series of related hybrid workshops / lectures with the aim of providing the necessary knowledge to participants as well as for the adoption of practical and applicable knowledge of modern science and productive experimentation with emerging technologies such as bioelectronics.
The purpose of the project is to encourage young people to develop their own creativity in the supportive and productive environment that standard educational system can not provide.
Unified series of workshops, will be held once a week during one-semester and cover a variety of contemporary themes and techniques from the fields of biology, electronics, biotechnology, nanotechnology, programming, robotics and encourage multidisciplinary thinking and creating such as practicing cutting-edge scientific field- bioelectronics.
