CHEMARTS summer project for Aalto University students has been organized since 2012. This year the overall theme is ‘Plants’. You’ll familiarize with the basic and applied materials research and the concepts of biomimicry and syntechic biology. The first phase in June includes lectures, visits and hands-on workshops. The participants will continue their project(s) throughout the summer, depending on their plan and how many credits they are working for. The results will be exhibited publicly at Habitare fair 13.-17.9.2017.
The objectives of CHEMARTS summer workshop are:
to familiarise with and to get inspired by Finnish biomaterials
to envision how advanced biomaterials could make life easier and more comfortable in the future
to develop innovative ideas through hands-on prototyping and experimenting with materials
to experience interdisciplinary working environment in practice
Your vision: Material world 2047
What kind of place will our material world be in 30 years? Write the first chapter in your learning diary. Please argue your opinions and be prepared to discuss the topic in the first meeting.
