“I have an idea but I need help finding someone who can build it”.
“I have an idea but I need help finding someone who can build it” is a typical thing we hear at ESADE. The Makers club is made to help you build your vision.
The Makers Club has a novel approach to learning: we learn from each other. It’s coined peer learning.
Members are both teachers when they have understood, and students when they want to understand. Peer learning is about acceptance of one's weaknesses and advantages, which further encourages curiosity.
It's not about what you know anymore, it's about what you can do with what you know. That's why we think the next education system is project-based.
We reward initiatives and indisputable involvement of our members through a meritocratic structure. The more you give, the more you receive. Makers are driven by curiosity, ambition and accomplishment.
The Makers club is completely free and will always remain so. Students are selected neither on the basis of financial ability nor educational knowledge, but solely on the basis of their talent and motivation.
We are creating an environment that promotes learning, innovation and achievement in the field of technology.
We do that by empowering our members with education, shared projects and career opportunities.
Applying to the Makers Club is straightforward, you just fill out the application form below. We invite the most promising students for a short interview and we make the admission decision immediately afterward.
Members of the club gather for workshops once every two weeks at the E-Garage. Workshops are organized and taught by the students themselves. Workshops are usually divided in two parts: an applied theory part (of around one hour and a half) and a challenge part of around half and hour. This format turns out to be good enough for members to integrate and apply learnt concepts.
Although workshops are a big part of what we do, they only serve as a mean to a greater end: pushing students to make their own projects, whether that’s building a website, an app or a rocket.
We also invite our members to tech, startup and funding events frequently. This is part of our effort to bring business and tech worlds closer.
It is expected from members to attend to workshops and take initiatives with the club. If we consider involvement is too low, we’re not afraid of kicking members out (we did it already).
At the end of each academic year, members automatically join the alumni network of the club where there’s a strong ethos of helping out fellow makers. So whatever your problem, whether you need beta testers, a place to stay in another city, advice about a technical problem, or a connection to a particular company, there’s a good change someone in the network can help you.
In this workshop we will explore the functionalities of Sketch to make logos.
