Over the summer many students take (at least a temporary) break from studying and exams, seasonal jobs and enjoy more free time, some believe the summer sunshine is the perfect ingredient to get inspired and learn about new and interesting things.
Almost a hundred students from all over the world decided to join Algebra’s experts at the sixth edition of Algebra International Summer School from July 3 to 29. Students from France, Germany, Turkey, Ukraine, Denmark, Canada, USA, Mexico and Brazil came to Croatia to learn all about the latest trends in the world of digital technologies.
Apart from a new set of digital skills for their CV, the international environment was a unique benefit for students to develop soft skills of teamwork on the global market. In their free time, students had the opportunity to enjoy the sun, sea and other beauties of Croatia as a top European summer destination.
Algebra’s International Summer School consists of as many as seven courses with an additional course on Croatian language and culture. This year, students could choose between very different professional courses and expand their knowledge in Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, Data-Driven Storytelling, Management and Entrepreneurship for IT professionals, Mobile Application Development, Digital Marketing and Experimental Drawing. However, the lectures and content at the International Summer School are far from standard and usual. The students had the opportunity to upgrade their skills and knowledge and learn from professionals from leading Croatian and global companies in the field of digital technology, such as Bornifght, Degordian and Q Agency. In addition, they tested and demonstrated their own talents and capabilities. Students in the course of Experimental Drawing presented their talent and skills with their pop-up exhibition at the end of the second week of lectures on Algebra’s new campus in Zagreb.
The Summer School programme was made perfect by our spend a week in Zadar – one of the most beautiful cities on the Dalmatian coast, thanks to the cooperation with the University of Zadar. It doesn’t get better than attending courses with the backdrop of the most beautiful sunset in the world and spending free time at sunny beaches!
The final week we were back to where it all began – Zagreb! Summertime is the perfect season to explore the capital of Croatia, with rich history and cool summer festivals, so the students were happy to get another chance to explore it.
As part of the Croatian language and culture course, students created a video diary (travelogue) of their trip to Croatia; in groups of three to five, they recorded educational videos about Croatia and what they experienced and learned. The memories they carry with them, we are sure, will permanently enrich their private and future business lives.
It has been an amazing journey of knowledge, technology, travel and friendship. We are proud of all our Summer Schoolers who passed their courses and received final certificates.
