Work for 7 months on a STEAM project, it will make a difference for a lifetime.
“We want to create a future where both girls and boys build solutions for tomorrow, inspired by the UN’s Global Goals.”
After participating in a Robothon you can work with a group of 2-4 people with a problem that can be solved with a technological solution. We invite participants to solve a challenge from the SDGs with an entrepreneurial mindset. Girls and boys can sign up for a 6 to 7 month project. This gives you more time to dig deeper into the thought processes of entrepreneurs. The mentoring projects are created based on the needs that each student has identified and wants to work on.
If a girl or boy wants to develop her idea/product, she can submit it for approval. If the project is approved, a mentor is assigned to the project and €150,- is budgeted for the further development of the idea. The year ends with a presentation of the concept and solution of the project. We close the project together with the mentor, organization of ICE-Bots and other mentor project groups.
An entrepreneur is someone who identifies a problem and finds an innovative way to solve it. Like any discipline, entrepreneurship can be learned. Are you curious about an entrepreneurial mindset? Curious to experience it yourself? If you are young and daring, come and give it a try. This will be an exciting and captivating experience with entrepreneurial thinking.

- Problem Solving
Participants gain hands-on experience generating ideas and developing creative solutions to problems and challenges.
We will cultivate each student’s ability to get out of her comfort zone.
participants are encouraged to be fearless and not to be limited
the students learn to communicate and collaborate with a diverse group of people from different backgrounds and with different skills and perspectives.
- Generating ideas
Students will be asked to come up with many ideas without judging them. We ask them to think broadly and long – without fear.
Students learn to lose the passion when they can articulate their ideas, convince their audience, and sell them to potential “customers” or “investors.”
- Presenting in front of a group
Students are trained to overcome their fears when making presentations to large groups. We coach them to communicate their ideas comfortably and confidently on stage.
