Developing Future Engineer’s Skills
Makeademy educators guide: boosting students’ entrepreneurial skills and mindset
Makeademy Educators guide was created to help educators lead university students and/or teams through the business idea development process using our Student business idea development roadmap.
This guide will help educators facilitate processes of business idea development, creative thinking, teamwork and personal skill development.
This guide comprises the “Student business idea development roadmap” and the “Educators’ Guide”. Most of the methodologies mentioned in this guide are available for free online. There are more open resources available on the project website makeademy.eu.
From idea to prototype: Makeademy's impactful summer school experience
For two weeks, participants of the Erasmus+ program project "Makeademy" sought an answer to this question. Students from Lithuania, Latvia, Denmark, Spain, and Italy attended an intensive summer school, where they learned techniques for problem identification, idea generation, and solution finding. Ultimately, utilizing rapid prototyping and using electronic waste provided by the company "EMP Recycling," the students developed solutions to identified problems. The summer school was hosted by Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VILNIUS TECH) Creative and Innovation Center "LinkMenų fabrikas".
