Display now: a showcase of third year research projects

Ever wonder what third year students at KaosPilots work on? For their final year, the students at KaosPilots Switzerland (KP SUI) create their life design. This means they design the project of their dreams.

Currently, the third year students at are showcasing their research projects at a mini museum-like space at the school, called “Display of Now”. By showcasing their work, in physical form at the school and through this blog post, the third year students intend to communicate what they have explored so far and offer insights into what fields they will be exploring next. The insights & research they gather in these next few months will be used to create prototypes of their final projects. In addition, by displaying what they have come up with as of now, leaves space for important partners or stakeholders to step forward and offer ideas, inputs, or advice.

KP SUI student projects are displayed below in the following infographics. If you have a resource, interest, or contact, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the third year student listed below the infographic to connect. They’d love to hear from you!
