Inicio has celebrated the Girls in ICT day since 2016. The International Girls in ICT day is an initiative by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and is celebrated yearly on the last Thursday of April. The aim is to create a global environment that empowers and encourages girls and young women to consider careers in the growing field of ICT.
This year we invite 100 girls ,of ages 13 – 19, to participate in a full day of hands on activities and case studies. The event will tale place on the 25th of April at KTH Kista 09:00-16:00. Register here.
You don’t need expensive technology to be able to meet Skolverkets requirements. We will demo and explain simple and understandable ways to enhance classroom content with technology connected to real life problems. Come build BubbleNodes with us!
It’s been 3 years since the official opening of the Kista Mentorspce and we are celebrating!
Join us for an afterwork to find out more about our activities and upcoming events. During the afterwork you will have the opportunity to learn more about the Mentorspace and see live demos of some of the projects that are developed here. Join our Mentorspace quiz at 17:30 to win a unique prize made at the Mentorspace.
The Mentorspace by Inicio is a physical place where participants experience hands-on practice with digital technology and electronics, developing abilities for problem solving, individual learning style and personal growth through mentorship. The open knowledge sharing eases social inclusion for all ages, genders, cultural backgrounds and educational levels.
Join us on Saturday March 2nd, 14:00-16:00 at the Kista library to build an Artbot. Artbots are simple robots that can draw on flat surfaces and it’s a fun way to learn about electronics, forces, friction and more.
You will also get the chance to try out the library’s 3D printer and learn how to design 3D objects with Blender, a 3D design software.
The event is drop in, but make sure to come early to have time to build your Artbot.
Inicio is participating for the second year in Södertälje Science Week with two activities.
During the science week a number of companies and organisations will present their cases and the students will work in groups and try to come up with solutions in just a few hours. Inicio is providing mentoring, which will continue in the fall 2019 when the cases will be extended to full scale project presentations.
We also hope to meet curious citizens of all ages in the Science Week after work activities, Meet & Chill in the main entrance hall of the Södertälje Science Park. Inicio will be there on 30 and 31 January, 16:00-18:00 with a workshop on building Bubble Nodes.
