What kind of homes will we live in tomorrow? Will they be mobile or stationary? What kind of energy will we use? Around 100 local high-school juniors enrolled in science tracks will try to answer these and other questions during the Innov@school 2017 program. This CEA Tech-Grenoble School District initiative kicked off in 2013 with the purpose of raising students’ awareness of the challenges of innovation and careers in the field.
Groups of fifteen students will spend a day at MINATEC with their teachers learning about the technologies on display in the showroom from the scientists and engineers that developed them. A creativity workshop facilitated by the Ideas Laboratory will follow. Students will be asked to come up with a list of ideas they can use either for the Inno’cup Junior competition or for their graduation projects next year.
