  • Industrial design for product, service and business development by CadXpert (6.00-6.45 pm)

Industrial design became a widespread tool for gaining competitive advantage. We are surrounded by products that achieved success just because of great and useful design. Nowadays engineering is not enough because today’s market deserves usability and aesthetic delight.

    • how to collaborate with design office without wasting money.

 

  • MOON Game (7.00-8.00 pm)

MOON is a game for 1 to 4 players where you control the computer of the Eagle lunar module during the first landing on the Moon. Just 3 minutes before landing, the computer of the ship failed! However, a good design by the software engineers of the team leadered by Margaret Hamilton prevented a huge failure. You will have to emulate those clever software routines and help the astronauts to land the ship safely!

Playing this game you will learn to count in binary, make logical and
mathematical operations and repair technical failures that will occur
during the mission.

  • Sessions 
    • AGH Space Systems by Zuzanna Rydz and Wojciech Kłos (7:00-7:20)

AGH Space Systems is a students construction team, functioning as a science club at AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow. It was formed in 2014, and since then it had completed more than fifteen full-fledged projects and constructions, many of which have taken part in various international competitions, and brought numerous rewards home.

Students' Space Association is a team of over 100 students working on record-breaking projects since 1996. SKA has successfully launched two satellites (first and fourth from Poland - PW-Sat and PW-Sat 2) and is constructing the third one, PW-Sat3. 

      • Project Scorpio by Natalia Ćwilikowska (7:40-8:00)

Project Scorpio is best known for designing and building rovers for student competitions. For several years, we have also successfully implemented other projects, such as the Eagle lander or the Twardowsky Mars base.

ART FACTOR

is a program aimed at bridging the gap between the artists and the innovation community. 

  • 'The Matter of Code' by Wiesław Bartkowski - introduction to the exhibition idea and Creative Coding practice (7.00-8.00 pm)

'The Matter of Code' exhibition shows how Creative Coding crosses the boundaries between art, design and science. The Creative Coding practice is a call to start thinking in an anti-disciplinary way, to forget about the stereotypical divisions between the humanistic and scientific mind and change the passive recipients of technology into its active creators. At the heart of our approach to Creative Coding is permission to create something that is not needed. Accidental wandering and openness to error lead to a wonderful surprise and a creative discovery. We are convinced that this approach gives the chance to create something groundbreaking. Hack the way technology is used, find unexplored areas of code usage and explore seemingly impossible connections at the junction of the physical and digital world.

  • Urban Echo by Klem Jankiewicz - installation, an example of the matter of code (5.00-8.00 pm)

Urban Echo is an interactive installation exploring our relationship with technology. A swarm of electronic objects decomposes human voice and reconstructs it in space. Our unique voice turns into the voice of the swarm.

It is also an anti-black-box statement. All of the carefully designed electronic components, usually hidden inside plastic shells, are used as a form and visual identity of the objects. Urban Echo was part of a theater play Roja, written and directed by Monika Popiel for Teatr Powszechny in Warsaw, and was also exhibited during World Maker Faire in New York.
