CityLab! "Where the City Becomes the Classroom”
|Location:||City Centre Location TBC|
The CityLab! project is an interdisciplinary opportunity for students from across both Robert Gordon University (RGU) and the University of Aberdeen, to team up in mixed groups with support from Aberdeen City Council, to identify and develop a range of initiatives across the Granite City, which will have a positive student impact.
The CityLab project aims to transform and innovate Aberdeen by initiating and supporting student led solutions for citywide change. Previous CityLab projects have resulted in new business proposals and a successful business startup.
This 10-week collaborative project will take place throughout Semester 1 on Wednesday afternoon from 2pm -4pm at a City Centre location.
RGU and University of Aberdeen will provide support from the academic side so that students gain the soft skills for dealing with clients and prototyping ideas needed to complete the project. We expect that students will do about 10 hours of work a week on the project, and that given the diversity of the possible projects there will be minimal coursework and no exam.
This is a fantastic opportunity to develop team skills, reflect on your personal and professional development through a practical learning experience and extend your professional network whilst gaining business mentoring skills.
Students from any discipline can get involved, if you are interested please contact Jon Pengelly to register.
