Do you like to experiment, mix new and old technologies and are DIYs in every way? Do you like to pass on and exchange your knowledge for other purely radical innovations? Are you interested in biotechnology and sensors or robotics and wearable technologies? Are you more environmentally conscious and thinking about renewable technologies or precision chemistry? These printed circuit boards and microcontrollers like the Arduino don’t give you peace of mind? These are just a handful of segments within the wide field of interactive creation that we establish within the konS platform. If you are interested in any of the listed practices or would like to research any of the above, we invite you to train for future mentors. You can expect collaboration with experts, the opportunity to develop your own ideas, teamwork and create at the intersection of science and art. We offer you the opportunity to join our network, where we hack advanced technologies.
Everyone who would like to pass on their energy to young people and those who want knowledge: mathematicians, mechatronics technicians, electricians, programmers, biotechnologists, artists, photographers, pedagogues, scientists, students, high school students…
You can sign up at the links below. The training will be conducted by the team of the Kersnikov Institute. The training takes place within the project #konS – Platform for Contemporary Research Art and takes place in five Slovenian cities: Ljubljana, Velenje, Novo mesto, Maribor and Nova Gorica.
