Robotic competitions like the First Lego league challenge allows our students to test their knowledge, leadership and skills bringing in the experience to get involved further in Design Thinking events and invite students to tackle science, humanitarian or environmental world challenges. The Start’up Lycée is a two day event during which students are invited to become young entrepreneurs and build a start-up in just 48 hours!
