About the project

The aim of the project is to bring science behind new technologies closer to public, and thus popularise it, through media. During week-long training course (seminars, workshops, study visits), the participants will gain insight into diverse topic – augmented/virtual reality, robotics/artificial intelligence, but also nuclear fission and fusion, space missions etc. They will be able to report on those topics in simpler, but still accurate, way. The participants will also explore new technologies used in media (e.g. 4K video, 360 video). They will create reportages published on the project’s website and in an Orange Magazine e-book later. There will be also second training in Graz at the end of November 2018 along with the European Youth Award Festival.

  • be trained on how to report on digital technologies and events related to them;
  • learn about modern technologies that can be used in media and get skills in using them;
