 An ITS-Lab is a 4 hours event at the VU, hosted in the INTERTAIN lab, where students receive a lecture and 
 do practical work on the same topic. Roughly comparable to a master class, but shorter and for a whole class.

 Give an ITS Lab.

Master class IMM

 The IMM master class is highly desired, but a topic needs to be determined before we announce this to students.
 High school students apply individually for a day at the university. One topic is treated with a large focus on
 practical work. This master class needs to have links with business. 
 Keywords; Web Science, the future of IT & business, impact of semantic web on society, requirements engineering,
 applications of ubiquitous computing, etc.

 Staff members needed to create or contribute to the development a new masterclass. 
 - Hans Akkermans(*)
 Give the master class IMM

High school visit

 To improve our visibility at schools we should go there. Give a lecture about your topic(s) to a class.

On-line courses

Discovery festival

The Discovery festival is every year somewhere in september. The festival focuses on science, art and dance. It can act as a podium to improve visibility of the university/research group. Participating requires an interesting topic, where the essence is easy to understand. Some sort of interactive (fun) experiment or demonstration is required. http://www.discoveryfestival.nl/
