Projects we support
We already support the following projects:
Girls Coding Club
The Coding Club for Girls is an initiative by École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne. This project offers workshops across Switzerland for girls aged between 11 and 15 who are interested in IT. These workshops cover topics such as programming an application and creating computer games.
EPFL Xplore is a student-led robotics project from EPFL, part of the MAKE initiative. Their mission is to leverage project-based learning in the training of engineers at EPFL and to step into the highest level of development and achievement in the field of robotics, by collaborating with research laboratories and the industry.
42 Lausanne - part of the 42 Network, is the first network of developer schools to be entirely free of charge, open to everyone without any qualifications, and accessible from the age of 18. Its teaching methods are based on "peer-to-peer learning," a participative approach with no classes and no teachers that allows students to unleash their creativity through project-based learning.
