After a successful first edition in 2016, the French Embassy in India/Institut Français India, the Maker’s Asylum, and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research, Paris, partner once again to bring you the second edition of the STEAM School.
Held under the umbrella of Bonjour India 2017-18, this Indo-French partnership programme will bring together 100 participants from India & France. It will take place from 6th to 15th December in Mumbai, hosted at the Maker’s Asylum FabLab.
Participants will work in teams, each one in charge of designing a solution to existing Urban Challenges in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
Throughout the programme, they will receive training in Design thinking, Rapid Prototyping, 3D Printing, Electronics/IoT, and AR/VR to acquire the necessary skills, with constant mentorship from Indian and French experts, while also getting the opportunity to take part in practical workshops and field visits, and to engage with Indian and French entreprises.
The S.T.E.A.M School – “S.T.E.A.M.” stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics – is the outcome of an initiative by the SST that started in 2015 with the visit in India by Nicolas Huchet and his project BionicoHand, and further developed with Vaibhav Chhabra, founder of Makers’ Asylum, who visited the CRI in France in April 2016.
