TEDxKraków@Students | October 25

This year, for the first time in the history of TEDxKraków we will be holding an accompanying event aimed at students called TEDxKraków@Students, organized by All In UJ and supported by Aon Hewitt. This year’s conference centers on the word Make!, so we’ll be presenting students that are also makers.

All In UJ’s Viewing Party will consist of four sessions: we’ll watch a livestream of one session of the TEDxKraków conference, followed by a presentation by prof. Jerzy Vetulani, one of our favourite pastspeakers, followed by student presentations.

The second half of TEDxKraków@Students will feature the following student makers:

The AGH Racing Team – This team of students will tell their story of the race car they built and raced at Silverstone and in Hungary. The project to build a Formula Student car is the result of the cooperation between the Mechatronix research group and the AGH Racing Team. The makers behind the car are a group of motoring enthusiasts from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics at AGH, who initiated the whole project at the beginning of 2012.

Martyna Jaworska – A 22-year-old student at the Jagiellonian University’s Medical College who decided a few months ago to organize a charity concert to raise money for poor communities in the Andes, and used the collected funds to buy antibiotics, bandages and vitamins, and then embarked on a medical and humanitarian expedition to Peru! Last year she took part in a similar expedition to the island of Java. Her biggest dream is to become a doctor for Doctors Without Borders. At TEDxKraków@Students she will talk about her travels and why you should do something for others!

Magdalena Tekieli – A student of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków’s Department of Industrial Design. Magda is an industrial and graphic designer and the founder of the design studio Magdalena Tekieli Design as well as the Paper Love brand. She embodies many facets of design. She’s also a two-time scholarship recipient from the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, and studied abroad on scholarship in Ljubljana. She was also a finalist in the youth competition organized by ELLE Decoration. Magda will tell us how everyday objects can be both practical and beautiful!

Mateusz Ilba – A PhD student at AGH’s Department of Surveying and Environmental Engineering, Mateusz won first place at the 3D graphics competition of the Be Awards Bentley Students Design Competition. Mateusz is mainly interested in computer graphics, film and animation, and his dream is to create his own short 3D film with a good story and entry in film festivals. He will introduce us to the world of not only computer graphics but also geomatics, a topic that is completely unknown to most!
