For all those among you who are interested in joining our robotics-camps for STEM-girls at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH):
The impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is global and severe, especially in Germany which since December 2020 was forced to take drastic measures to bring the outbreak under control. Public life in Germany has come to a standstill since Dec 2020 as social gatherings have been restricted and shops, schools and universities have remained closed since then. Entry regulations remain “fluid”, i.e. can change from day to day. Current prediction is that the German population will not be fully vaccinated until the fall of 2021.
Your children´s safety and well-being is our top priority. From today´s COVID-19 perspective, a summer camp in 2021 seems highly improbable. However, if you / your daughter is interested you may still apply on a “wait-and-see” basis, based on last year´s program format.
We are not planning to switch to a remote-learning format. For a course like ours, which is an innovative, collaborative apprenticeship culture based on direct human interaction, a virtual classroom is not an ideal format. We are very focused on giving the participants the direct mentorship which is unique to Robotics Institute. We will continue to monitor the situation and I will keep you informed.Alexis Noguer, CEO and Founder of Robotics Institute, father of two teenage daughters
