Slovenia Idea Camp
The Idea Camp in Slovenia was held online on 18 and 19 November 2021, where 138 students and 22 teachers from 17 schools, and 15 industry mentors were present. During the first day, the challenge and methodology were revealed, and expert sessions were held by Mr. Gregor Sakovič from Nova Ljubljanska Banka. The second day was dedicated to creating new business ideas and the business pitch training with Mr. Leon Magdalec, a public performance coach from Nastop plus d.o.o.
Students could choose between two challenges:
- How would you create new value by recycling, remanufacturing, or reusing used electrical and electronic appliances or their components and materials?
- How would you encourage the servicing, re-use, sharing or use of new ways of selling electrical and electronic appliances to make them more user friendly?
The winning teams presented the following ideas:
The competition was won by the students from the “School Center Ptuj” – School of Economics, Tourism and Agriculture. The team came up with the idea of reusing the cases of old computers to create mailboxes, which would then be decorated with unique paintings.
The second place was awarded to the students from the High School France Miklošič Ljutomer, who came up with the idea of offering a service to remove usable parts from discarded electrical and electronical devices, making it easier to find spare parts on the market.
The third place was also won by a student team from the High School France Miklošič Ljutomer. The students proposed the idea of renting electronic equipment to several local communities.
