MAST – Master Module in Art, Science and Technology is a new project awarded to M-ITI with participation of the ERA Chair holder Prof. Christopher Csikszentmihalyi.
From 19 to 23 of November, M-ITI is hosting the first project workshop:Progressive Product Prototypes workshop.
In this one week intensive workshops, students from Graz, Nova Gorica and Funchal, along with their mentors and further experts from the MAST consortium will inquire about “how and why of making things”. In this crash course (sometimes literally) students develop workshop and laboratory skills, “/…/ from cutting wood to welding metal, etching circuits to using machine tools.
Parallel to the INTENSIVE LEARNING workshop, from November 21 to 23 the MAST consortium will meet in its third consortium meeting to consolidate the developing curriculum and coordinate impact, as well as evaluate the first 6 months of the project course.
About the project:
The MAST project is developing an applied study module at the intersections of Art, Science and Technology, combining methodologies and practices that intertwine the academic sphere closely with the Culture and Creative Sectors. Nurturing a critical perspective on the historical, economical, social and above all cultural relevance of this interdisciplinary blend within the new digital shift, the MAST project develops innovative, ICT-enhanced teaching and learning methods. Students from different countries and disciplines will, under mentorship of engineers, scientists and artists, in partnership with relevant NGOs and industry partners, jointly tackle challenges emerging from the paradox between the obviously disparate agendas of Europe’s ambition towards innovation on the one side, and the need for social equity on the other.
