Workshops

Our offers have one goal - to forge qualified teams for innovative ideas. Therefore, the focus is not only on the technical product but much more on the network and the mutual inspiration of the team members. Anyone who has an idea can express it freely. Motivated partners from the silverLabs network are committed to the ideas they like.

We offer the following training and consulting services...

UX Design - First Steps of App Development

You don't want to go to school anymore? Then come and join us! Make your own app and become a startup millionaire in just one and a half hours! Win the first ten likes! No, all kidding aside! But have you ever wondered how your favorite app came to be? Basically, any product can be considered a service these days. And this can be presented along a so-called customer experience.

How do you design a target group-oriented service that doesn't yet exist? After a brief introduction to the topic of user experience design, the participants divide into small working groups. Together they find new solutions using creative techniques and learn under our competent guidance to prepare and present them precisely on a concept poster.

Awareness on the Net - My Data Belongs to Me!

We spend a lot of time every day using apps or surfing the web. This workshop teaches students what personal data is collected and stored while using apps and surfing the web and what happens to this data afterwards. A keynote lecture provides skills on how tracking and data use by apps works. It also provides insights into how users can make data storage and use processes transparent to themselves. In the subsequent practical part, the participants of the workshop will try out the mentioned methods exemplarily and apply them to practical examples.

Workshop leader: Prof. Dr. Ina Schiering (Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Computer Science, Institute for Information Engineering)

    Identify and describe data protection risks

    After a keynote speech on the basics of data privacy and data privacy risks, we analyze and reflect on the basis of this with the students on scenarios from everyday life. We ask ourselves the following questions: What are the possible negative consequences when data protection risks occur and what does this mean for people? How does this happen and what role does the context play? Here, we are primarily looking at everyday situations of students, especially with regard to digitalization in schools. We look forward to an exciting exchange and the participants' own ideas.

      Arduino Programming - Interactive Environmental Measurement with Arduino

      In a thematic introduction to Arduino programming, the students learn the basic principles of programming digital and analog functions using an Arduino. Subsequently, the participants build a digital traffic light that represents the measured values of the sensors. The sensors used can be chosen from CO2, light, humidity or volume sensors. Depending on the measured value, the traffic light turns green, yellow or red.
