GISSV students and teachers visited HPI, discussing AI, education reinvention, and potential collaborations, with the students' startup pitches receiving enthusiasm for possible participation in the incubator program.
Last week, a group of students and teachers from GISSV had the pleasure of visiting the HPI School of Design Thinking (HPI D-School). They were fortunate enough to meet with Dr. Claudia Nicolai, the academic director of the HPI D-School, and Thomas Grundnigg, program lead at the HPI D-School. After a tour of the building they had a productive conversation about the use of AI in Design Thinking, Design Thinking in schools, and how we can reinvent education through design thinking. Furthermore, they explored the possibility of future collaborations.
The visit continued with a trip to HPI's School of Entrepreneurship (HPI E-School), where the group had the opportunity to learn about their entrepreneurship program from program manager Franz Breu. Students Felicia A. and Fiona H. even pitched the startup ideas of the Sesamo team (Jules B., Toshiyuki J., Rosa B., and Laurenz H.) and Ape Earth team (Nicolas Sch., Philipp W., and Lars L.) which were met with great enthusiasm. Mr. Breu was so impressed that he is open for GISSV applications to the incubator program. Overall, it was an incredibly inspiring and informative visit that opened up new possibilities for us.
