The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences organizes the project week Students in Motion. Around 2000 students will get the chance to meet each other and get to know Amsterdam’s Creative Industry. The studies involved are: AMFI-Amsterdam Fashion Institute, Communication and Multimedia Design, Information Technology and Computer Science, Media, Information and Communication.
Apart from webclasses and company visits, the students get a concrete assignment: “Design a proof-of-concept for a mobile application that supports the people from Amsterdam and its visitors, with the use of Open Data”. This app will be designed for a certain neighbourhood and a specific theme in Amsterdam.
Waag takes part in SIM by giving the students advice. A team, consisting of a conceptual developer, designer and a programmer, will test the concepts. A personal advisory rapport will follow and help the students on their way to the final presentations.
