The Ashesi Innovation Experience (AIX) 2017

The Ashesi Innovation Experience is an intense and exciting two-week enrichment program developed by faculty at Ashesi for senior high school students between the ages of 15 and 20. AIX expands the vision and broadens the aims of students, inspires them, challenges them, and equips them with concrete skills for innovation in the 21st Century: skills in leadership, design thinking, entrepreneurship, robotics programming and engineering.

This year’s AIX runs from the 6th to the 20th August, 2017. Students will arrive at Ashesi on 6th August.

Students who participate in AIX will:

  • Be exposed to the science of design and creative problem solving, leadership, entrepreneurship, robotics programming and engineering, through hands-on projects and experiential learning;
  • Be ambassadors of Ashesi’s mission wherever they find themselves; to spread the spirit of ethics, integrity, leadership and citizenship;
  • Be part of a network of young innovators prepared to help change the face of business, technology and leadership in Africa
