Fascinating Informatics Study Week 2009


Staff - Faculty of Informatics

28 September 2009

From August 24 to 28, 2009, the USI Faculty of Informatics welcomed on the Lugano campus six young students from Nidwalden (3), Bern (2), Aargau (2) and Zurich (1) for the “Fascinating Informatics” study week, in collaboration with the Schweizer Jugend Forscht foundation.

These young talents worked with enthusiasm on a wide range of projects proposed by our researchers, such as: web applications, iPhone apps, the Mindstorm Lego Robot, 3D programs.  

In addition to developing the assigned projects, their task was also to prepare a poster to illustrate them and their related final report.

Finally, on Saturday, August 29, at the University of Neuchâtel, for its 150th anniversary, the final presentation of all the projects developed by the 41 young students – hailing from all over Switzerland – who took part in the nation-wide event and who spent the study week at USI, Universities of Basel and Neuchâtel, ETH Zurich, and the University of Applied Sciences at Brugg/Windisch was held.
