What happened in 2015
"I really enjoyed the freedom of the course. It is about bringing yourself to the problem rather than education bringing it to you." Saad Arshad, Student in Mathematics ETH Zurich
ETH Week 2015 'The Story of Food'
In September 2015, the first ETH Week ‘The Story of Food’ took place on Campus Hönggerberg. Almost 130 ETH participants from 15 departments and 27 countries formed 12 interdisciplinary teams. We had invited over 20 experts who worked with the participants on their ideas. A specific workbook (PDF, 18 MB) was guiding the students through the week. Last, but not least, they were supported by a team of 16 excellent tutors.
The Teams of ETH Week 2015
During ETH Week 2015, the 12 teams of ETH students were asked to solve a problem within six days time. Nothing unusual this far. The twist? The problem was left open and needed to be defined by the students themselves. To be able to do so, each team needed to go through quite a process: identify the different perspectives on the topic, gather knowledge from experts, define a common understanding, reduce the number of possibilities, select and eventually formulate clearly what problem is to be solved and why. Prototypes of solutions then almost came naturally and illustrated relevance and impact.
