The UTech Lab, the creative employment laboratory of the Eugenides Foundation, which is focused on modern technology, organizes free workshops for teenagers 12-18 years old this fall, live and online.

The workshops

Motion tracking and visual effects

Create filters with XNUMXD models and graphics
Suggested ages: 14-18 (XNUMXrd Gymnasium-XNUMXrd Lyceum)
Laboratory with physical presence

The workshop is about how filters are created on various social media or how a XNUMXD digital model is inserted into a video. Motion tracking is a technique of recording the movement of an object or person (model) in XNUMXD space. Using Spark AR Studio software, participants encode the model's motion into a video, insert graphic and XNUMXD models into live scenes, and create their own augmented reality social media filters.

Computational Design: Constructions through programming

Block programming and architectural design
Suggested ages: 14-18 (XNUMXrd Gymnasium-XNUMXrd Lyceum)
Laboratory with physical presence and online

What can a cell, a piece of code, and mathematical equations have to do with a dome? Absolute! Computational Design is the most technologically advanced way of designing. It is a method that uses programming to create complex geometric shapes, taking into account various parameters such as the mechanical strength of the construction, the properties of the materials, and even various geometries found in nature such as hives in beehives or anthills. In the workshop the participants will get in touch with the concept of computational design and how this can affect the way we construct buildings and objects.. Entering the position of modern architectural engineer, they will have the opportunity to combine basic engineering principles, mathematics and programming, to create a geodetic canopy through TinkerCad CodeBlocks.


Introductory concepts of Arduino and its programming
Suggested ages: 12-18 (A 'Gymnasium- C' Lyceum)
Laboratory with physical presence

Participants get in touch with the microcontroller and how to use it. They become familiar with the electronic components that one needs for an experimental construction and thus make their first circuit. Finally, by programming the Arduino board, they see how it can control this circuit, which they then, with imagination and experimentation, modify.


For your participation in the workshops it is necessary to reserve a place on the phone 210 9469641, from Monday to Friday, hours 9: 30-16: 30. The entrance is free.
