DISCLAIMER: due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19 we are not yet sure whether and in what form the Inspire-U summercamp edition of 2021 will take place. There will be more information about upcoming edition around may 2021.
We hope to realize a normal edition of the Inspire-U summercamp during the summer of 2022!
InspireU summer camp, usually taking place between in the summer, is based on a unique concept that revolves around a simple idea: to combine challenging academic courses with entertaining activities in a festival ambiance to ultimately create an inspiring experience. We want you to learn something new, and in the meantime have a very good time doing it. Additionally, we want to create experiences that will last you a lifetime and act as stepping stones into your future careers, both on a professional and a personal level.

InspireU summer camp takes place on the campus of the University of Twente. The summer camp is aimed at both national (Dutch) as well as international high school students who haven't yet started their university careers, but are finishing up their high school education.
If you are at least 15 years of age and in your later to final stage of high school, summer camp InspireU is for you. Keep in mind that InspireU is an English event. Although there is no official language check, an intermediate level of understanding and speaking the English language is highly recommended.
During the last edition of Inspire-U Summercamp there were three courses: Battle of the Robots, Build your Business, Why Waste Water. All participants signed up for one of these courses. During the summercamp you follow substansive sessions to learn everything of the course.
Besides, a big part of InspireU is the general festival vibe. We're organizing a bunch of activities where elements of sports, music and entertainment will be brought together to create the ultimate festival experience. A typical day might look something like this:
A wise man once said: A strong breakfast is the cornerstone of productivity. Once you’re all fired up, you’ll join in the morning session of your course for the day. That might be a workshop, a lecture or a project depending on the programme you choose. You’ll then join the other festival-goers for a themed lunch in an informal, interactive setting. After lunch you’ll dive back into your course. The evenings are devoted to the festival with plenty of fun and socializing. Keynote speakers will share their story about interesting topics during InspireU as well.
